The Bond Lexicon team (i.e. Gillian and Alan) had a great time at the recent Comicpalooza pop-culture event in Houston TX, where we’d been asked to present our “25 Things You Didn’t Know About James Bond” panel. It was interesting, and a little different, being on an open stage in the middle of the main convention floor. We got a good engaged crowd, had some fun throwing out a mix of 007 themed trivia questions and facts for the audience. Thanks also to the few folks who stayed a while after the panel and picked up signed copies of The James Bond Lexicon to take home with them. – It was good to be back on the convention circuit again and meeting people.
We were delighted to recently be asked to join Edgar and Matt of the excellent James Bond Complex podcast for a wide ranging conversation about all things 007 related. It was a fun and at times insightful conversation with some great questions.
The guys at the excellent Central Intelligence Cinema podcast were crazy enough to ask us to be the first guests on their new “Special Operations Debrief” shows. We had a great time discussing many aspects of Bond geekdom as well as diving into some of the details of the The James Bond Lexicon.
You can listen the the conversation HERE.
Thanks to The 00 Files team for inviting us on to their podcast to discuss The James Bond Lexicon project. Gill and Alan had a great time discussing the book, and quizzing the guys on their James Bond Lexicon based knowledge. And of course, they had to turn the tables on us too! – Now we know to make sure we are fully briefed on the respective heights of Dutch actors in Bond movies!
We were honored to be the first guests on their special 007th Anniversary show. You can listen to the show on your favorite podcast platform, or even watch the interview on YouTube.
[Having listened back to our spot on James Bond Radio we realize that Alan made a couple of goofs.
- Fleming wrote Bond’s obituary in YOLT not OHMSS ! Oops!
- Jill and Tilly Masterton / Masterson were definitely sisters but not twins.
Sorry about that.]
