Talk to Me: The Man Behind Mad Men

Mad Men Producer Matthew Weiner may have created the character of Don Draper, but he is nothing like his inscrutable leading man. 

On the TV show, Don Draper keeps his personal life under wraps, but Weiner was an open book when he joined the Jungian analyst Morgan Stebbins for a recent Red Book Dialogue.

Weiner talked about his creative process (it involves eavesdropping) and discussed overcoming writers’ block.  The cat-like figure in the Jungian image also provoked an in-depth discussion about animals.
