Rich Sommer, center, as Harry Crane on television’s Mad Men.

Welcome back to the podcast! In this week’s episode we talk to actor Rich Sommer who plays ad man Harry Crane on AMC’s hit drama Mad Men. We discuss Mad Men’s take on mid-century American masculinity, how starring in the show has influenced Rich’s perception of manliness, lessons we can take from the show on how not to be a man, and of course, we talk the dapper style of the men at Sterling Cooper. Thanks for taking part in the podcast, Rich.

Brett and Rich – great interview gentlemen! I love these interviews that give us a deeper look at characters in a show and even better a more insightful understanding of the men who play these characters.

I was very happy to hear he read Dressing the Man and Gentleman…….and that he’s human when it comes to style!

Awesome interview!
