    Podcast Update (July 24th, 2020)

    If you missed the live video stream, you can now catch up with the first-ever James Bond & Friends podcast video panel.  The 'watchalong' regular crew of James Page, Calvin Dayson, Dr. Lisa Funnell, Bill Koenig, David Leigh, and Ben Williams take a break this week from commentary on a film and instead discuss the latest 'No Time To Die' developments, theorize what will become of Bond in the future, take questions from the live chat, debunk some Bond myths, and - as ever - drift off into a few tangents.  Head on over to YouTube to watch the recording: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_TG-BTGNWk0

Great reviews AND music

The reviews are solid and fun to hear, but the end of the podcasts have found some great twists on Bond songs. Where’s THAT compilation?

A weekly highlight

This podcast has brought me so much joy, they are probably the only one I’ve stayed in tune with since early March 2019. They have such a wealth of knowledge and behind the scenes information that I can never get enough of. The watch alongs are a treat during this time. Don’t even get me started on the amazing watch along Intros. Keep up the great work all, nobody does it better !!
