That last episode nearly killed us but we're back at it.  Join your favourite TransAtlantic podcasting crew – Ian, Liam, and Georgia - Ellie's still working on her 2nd kill - as we joined by Friend & Neighbour of the Podcast, Richard to discuss all things Bond in Casino Royale. We've got an itch we could use a little help scratching in our 89th episode as we discuss:

  • Where Daniel Craig was when we learned he was going to be James Bond
  • Which director offered to do the film and how manic it would have been
  • Ian does a little poker-for-dummies explanations and rants about how unrealistic the Texas Hold' Em is in this film
  • Where does Le Chiffre fit in with the great Bond villains?
  • We all get nostalgic about something very odd
  • We debate whether it's possible that sucking someone's fingers is NOT a sexual act
  • Georgia sums up all Bond films in about 30 seconds
  • Where do we all rank Chris Cornell's "You Know My Name" as a Bond theme
  • Whether it's possible for a film to feel bloated and rushed simultaneously
  • We all share the first album we ever bought
  • Whether or not Heat is the Best Film Ever.
