Who can defend the indefensible?

This episode of 'James Bond & Friends' is hosted by Paul Atkinson with guests James Page, Bill Koenig, and Ben Williams.

We experiment with a new format for this episode where each guest takes a turn to 'defend the indefensible' and make their case for an unpopular opinion in the James Bond universe. Will anyone have their minds changed? We tackle changing the shooting order of the early films for better continuity, under-appreciation of a much-maligned Bond girl, exploring just how smart James Bond is, future actor choices, and going with a left-field composer. At the end, we round out with discussion of the latest Bond 25 developments including the Jamaica teaser video and London shooting.

The recording took place on June 30th, 2019 in the USA, UK, and New Zealand.

Paul Atkinson and James Page are co-founders of MI6-HQ.com and the magazine MI6 Confidential
