Beards, Booze, and Bacon: The James Bond Episode

beards booze bacon james bond episode podcast

The first topic of discussion is obvious: Who is the best Bond ever? While we unanimously agreed on the top Bond, there was some controversy about the second-best Bond.

From there, the crew moved on to the things that make 007 fun. From the ridiculous to the practical, Drew breaks down the best Bond gadgets ever, as well as real-life technology that makes a few of Q’s inventions a little more believable. Sam then breaks down James Bond’s famous martini. Is it better shaken or stirred? What about the Vesper? Tune in to find out.

Who is the best Bond? Do you have a favorite movie or book? Which 007 gadget do you covet the most? Give us a shout at podcast@themanual.com — we’re always around! Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter and keep an eye out for our weekly podcast polls so you can join the discussion.
