Why Should You Listen To No Time to Die: The Official James Bond Podcast
I had the opportunity to listen to the first episode, Bond in Context. This episode sets the stage for the series. In an interview with the current James Bond, Daniel Craig reveals some of his trepidations of slipping on the trademark tuxedo while also offering his own interpretation of the famous spy with a license to kill. This episode discusses the Daniel Craig arc of movies beginning with Casino Royale and culminating with No Time to Die. Music and audio clips from previous movies further add to the podcast. I really enjoyed listening to this first episode and look forward to the second episode which will be released on Wednesday, October 7th. If you are a fan of James Bond, subscribe to the series and start listening while you wait for the theatrical release of No Time to Die next year.
