James Bond & Friends – Episode 0019: Derek Meddings’s Salt Shaker

The latest episode of James Bond & Friends is now available on Apple Podcasts and elsewhere.

In space, can you hear the James Bond screenwriters scream?

Space has been a recurring element in the James Bond film series, appearing in 7 adventures so far, and it was almost 8! As the 50th anniversary of the moon landings is celebrated, we discuss how 007 on the big screen was influenced by the real-world space race and the bets producers took on future events. We are left with just one question: how the hell do we get those diamonds down again? We round out the episode with a look at the latest 007 news including new trademarks, special screenings, Bond 25 shipping containers, and everyone takes a punt on when the title will drop.

The recording took place on July 19th, 2019 in the USA, UK, and Spain.
