We’re going deep into one of our favourite tv shows, Mad Men, today with the brilliant and lovely Kathryn of the blog Through A Glass Brightly. We discuss Don’s search for real love and intimacy, how the show exemplifies humanity’s quest for fulfilment, and the ways in which St. John Paul II’s Theology of the Body is present in the lives of the characters. So pour yourself a martini and join us!
Discussed in this episode:
Kathryn’s post on Brideshead Revisited: Finding Home in a Fierce Little Human Tragedy
Love Among the Ruins in “Mad Men” by Katie Summa
Christy’s Mad Men episode recaps of season seven.
You can read Kathryn’s writing about other great movies, tv shows, and books at her blog Through A Glass Brightly. She is also the creator behind the blog Love Among The Ruins, a collaborative blog exploring St. John Paul II’s Theology of the Body in unexpected places in culture, art, and movies.
