I love the history related to the movies. I never have been bored.
I used to always look at my time tracker on my slow jogs and listening to this goes by immediately listening to him. I recommend this even if your not a Bond fan. And he is funny too.

History

It’s great when you relate the Bond movies to History. You lose me otherwise.
