Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner recently sat down for a lengthy interview about the show with Elvis Mitchell for KCRW and NPR.
The discussion is nearly an hour long and touches on various aspects of the show, including: his work on The Sopranos and how it connected to Mad Men; how he cast Jon Hamm as Don Draper; the fact that a lot of the cast are from the Midwest; his background growing up in California; and the influence of Carnal Knowledge (1971).
