Bond A-Z Examines OHMSS

Alan was honored to be asked back to the James Bond A-Z podcast, where he joined fellow guest Mike Reyes from CinemaBlend to discuss our favorite Bond movie, ON HER MAJESTY’S SECRET SERVICE. We go in depth to tell the story of the movie, its stars, production, sounds, and enduring legacy. CLICK HERE to listen to the discussion.

Come Spy With Six of the Best

This month Jarrod and Alan broaden their Bond-related listening as they tackle one of the best spy music compilations, Come Spy With Us: The Secret Agent Songbook. While we may be listening to music from, and chatting about, other super spy franchises o the 1960s, there is still a lot of Bond and Fleming-related content. So tune in and find out just how much Jarrod knows about Danger Man and Alan’s sudden revelation about the lyrics to The Silencer.

Rogue Agents – Bond Trailers Part 1

Over on the On Her Majesty’s Secret Podcast network new Rogue Agent, Alan, got to lead the show for the first time and decided that the crew should take yet another look at all the Bond movies. But this time just by watching the various trailers used to promote the movie. In each of the trailers episodes, we will watch the trailer, discuss any thoughts and notes it provoked, and then decide if it would have made us interested enough to actually go see the movie. Kicking things off we discussed the trailers for Doctor No, From Russia With Love, and Goldfinger. You can find out what we all thought of them, and if 007 really does spell Bond, by clicking HERE.

A Triple Treat from Six of the Best

Jarrod mixes things up as his pick for the latest episode of the Bond Music: Six of the Best podcast only has three tracks – and they are all the same tune. How will Alan react to having to listen to three different versions of the James Bond Theme, and what movies do the boys think would match these interpretations. You can find out HERE.

London Lexicon Meet-Up

We were lucky enough to spend a couple of days in London recently where we enjoyed seeing a screening of The Living Daylights at the Prince Charles Cinema. Afterward, we enjoyed the company of Tom from the James Bond A-Z podcast, Gosse and Jorrit from the James Bond Netherlands website, Scott from the SpyHards podcast, and co-author of Some Kind of Hero, Ajay Chowdhury who also took us all on an impromptu walking tour of Fleming and Bond sites around the west-end of London. A memorable evening all around.

Ranking The Bonds: Thunderball

Alan wears his best eyepatch to hide some nuclear bombs while feeding Van to the sharks in the latest episode of the On Her Majesty Secret Podcast series Ranking the Bonds. Yes–it’s 1965’s THUNDERBALL! How do the lads rank the movie in terms of Villains, Henchmen, Bond Girls, Gadgets, and many more categories? Tune in and find out!

SpyHard with the Casino Royale Fun Movement

Alan had a great time joining the SpyHards Podcast crew recently, along with David Lowbridge-Ellis from Licence To Queer, for what must be the most in-depth, respectful, and informative discussion around the fascinating enigma that is Casino Royale ‘67 we’ve experienced to date. You can give it listen HERE

Lexicon Signing

Thanks to the fine folks at Austin Books & Comics for being such great hosts for our recent James Bond Lexicon in-store book-signing event.
