    Short Story E1: From a View to a Kill - BONUS!

    An odd but deftly executed motorcycle murder captures some important dispatch information.  It just so happens that Bond, James Bond, is in Paris licking his wounds and dreading his return to England where his career lies in the balance.  Suddenly he is summoned by a beautiful woman (who is NOT a sex worker), is briefed and on the job helping the MI5 fix their mistake.  Bond, almost single handedly solves the mystery and devises an elaborate plan.  He’ll either succeed or die trying.

    Live and Let Die - Movie Review BONUS!

    Ian and Chris take a little time to reflect on the 1973 film, Roger Moore's first time portraying Bond. With it's stark (very stark) differences form the novel they mostly wonder, "why?" For those who haven't seen the film, the only spoiler alert here is...well, disappointment.

    Be sure to listen through all of Season 2 (and why not Season 1 as well, you deserve it) to some provide context and look for Season 3 - Moonraker - in 2021.
