Mad Magazine turns 60 this year. Since 1952, its offices on Madison Avenue have buzzed as writers and artists drew parodies, spoofs and takeoffs of the culture of the day. “Totally Mad: 60 Years of Humor, Satire, Stupidity and Stupidity” (Time Home Entertainment/2012) came out this fall to high sales.

Host Frank Stasio is joined in the studio by Nick Meglin, a former editor of Mad, to talk about the workings of the usual gang of idiots.
