Because YOU demanded it, the fan-favorite team that delighted listeners around the world on the premiere episode of “Teach Craig Stuff” is back in their very own sidecast!!
Craig Smith, the headband-wearing founder of the Pods and Sods Network, teams up with Brian Linnen, the less popular host of the Permanent Record Podcast, on an audio adventure decades in the making!
“Craig & Brian Watch 007” kicks off in style, going back to the year 1962, to discuss James Bond’s big-screen debut! Sean Connery, Ursula Andress, Joseph Wiseman, and Jack Lord took the world by storm and cinema was never the same again. Connery was a hero unlike any that had graced movie screens before, and Andress took the world’s breath away with her forever-iconic bikini-clad introduction. Meanwhile, behind the camera, editor Peter Hunt was changing the way movies would look in the coming decade.
In a relationship not unlike that of Bond and Quarrel, Craig and Brian do their best to fill this premiere installment with as much trivia, humor, and discussion as they can muster. Things kick off with timely coverage of a major announcement in the literary world of Bond, before turning to the film. And as the show opening mentions, Craig and Brian have a license to spoil, so beware! If you haven’t watched this 61 year old movie yet, you might want to finally make time before hitting play.
Special thanks to Bond authority Robbie Sims for lending his dulcet tones to the show’s introduction. If Craig and Brian didn’t both suffer from inferiority complexes before having to follow Mr. Sims, well, they certainly do now!
