Happy Tuesday Wednesday, boys and girls! We actually started recording this week’s Firewall & Iceberg Podcast yesterday, but the Skype connection dropped out so often that we eventually tabled the thing and hoped conditions would improve today. They did not, but we powered through anyway, so you could hear us discuss “Wayward Pines,” HBO’s “Bessie,” and the penultimate “Mad Men.” And as a bonus, you can have fun playing Spot the Edit!

We should be back on Friday to talk about the upfronts, and next week we’ll do a farewell to “Mad Men” podcast, so start sending in those questions.

The rundown:

“Wayward Pines” (00:02:05 – 00:15:25)
“Bessie” (00:15:30 – 00:22:40)
“Mad Men” – “The Milk and Honey Route” (00:22:40 – 00:56:30)
