Why do the origins of characters have to be explained?

This episode of 'James Bond & Friends' is hosted by James Page with guests Joseph Darlington, David Leigh, and Bill Koenig.

In part two of our recording with Joseph Darlington, Head of Section at Being James Bond, we cover some recent 007 news not related to Bond 25 and answer questions from listeners using the hashtag #askbond. Along the way, we stumble across the return of a non-biodegradable nemesis, strange audiences, speedy run-times, rogue audio effects, fake-out flops, clipboard wielding girls, life's loose threads, and bouncing pearls. Thanks to @SeekOutWisdom, @MediumAtomic, and @Stingray_travel for the questions.

You can contact the show via the Twitter hashtag #askbond

The recording took place on August 23rd, 2019 in the USA and Spain.
