For their 94th episode, two globe-trotting critics, two gadget-y dads, and two dapper school teachers, Will Johnson and Don Shanahan are joined by return guest Beh Cahlamer. The Phoenix-based film critic of The Cinema Files joins the gentleman to talk about the 25th anniversary of James Bond entry "Tomorrow Never Dies." Starring Pierce Brosnan, Jonathan Pryce, and a then-fresh-faced (and, we can only hope, future Oscar winner) Michelle Yeoh, the 1997 actioner made our talkers long for the good old practical effects days of Ian Fleming's government agent.

The James Bond Book Club is back! This is the series where we discuss each Ian Fleming James Bond novel as if we are in the year of publication. Today it's the turn of Quarrel, Strangeways, HoneyChile Rider, and a fiend called Dr No! What is the Spybrary James Bond Book Club exactly and what makes it different from other 007 book clubs? On the James Bond Book Club, we get in our time machine and go back to the year of publication. We dissect each of the Ian Fleming 007 novels in order and include themes such as : 1) Discussing the timing of each book. The year in which it was written.    The zeitgeist of that time. Key historic and cultural events. 2) Background to the plot and any links to Fleming's personal experiences. 3) The U.K.'s first edition cover art. 4) The plot. 5)  Locations 6) Bond's character development. 7) The Villain.  8) La femme fatale. 9) The supporting cast. 10) The branding. 11) Key set pieces and the best chapters. 12) Critical reception We will not be referring to or discussing the 007 movies. We will only be referencing previous books rather than those published in the future - as if we are experiencing the work of Fleming for the first time.

Writing dynasties (part 2): Felix Francis, Andrew Child/Grant & Rajmohan Gandhi tell We'd Like A Word hosts Paul Waters & Stevyn Colgan about taking on a big book brand or carrying on a family writing tradition. It's different from continuation novels, they say, like when Anthony Horowitz took on Ian Fleming's James Bond character (see episode 4, series 1 of We'd Like A Word with Anthony Horowitz https://spotifyanchor-web.app.link/e/rtTQmLv7Ivb ). These are books, stories and characters with whom they have grown up. But do they try to be exactly like their predecessor or collaborator? Distinctively different? How open are they about it? Is it better to keep it a secret until you're sure that readers will like it? And what if the originator decides he maybe does not want to retire after all? How do they write? And what books are they writing next? Lots of interesting answers in this 4-part episode. Felix Francis is the son of Richard and Mary Francis, who together created the internationally bestselling Dick Francis thrillers, set in the world of horse racing. Felix began contributing to, then co-writing, then solely authoring the Dick Francis books long before his name was on the covers. He's written 16 of them now. Where does Dick end and Felix begin? Listen to find out. Andrew Grant - now also known as Andrew Child - is the younger brother of Lee Child (real name Jim Grant), the creator of the bestselling Jack Reacher series - which you may also know from the Tom Cruise movies or the Amazon series starring Alan Ritchson. When decided he had only 4 more books left in him, he asked his brother Andrew to collaborate with him with a view to ultimately taking over. (Though that particular plot thickens...) But Andrew was already a successful thriller author in his own right. And he has a personal past cloaked in mystery. Rajmohan Gandhi was a teenager when he was inspired to investigate how the world works and to write about it when his grandfather, the Mahatma, Mohandas Gandhi was assassinated in 1948. He spoke to We'd Like A Word at the Khushwant Singh Literary Festival in Kasauli in India. It's hard to think of a more famous forebear than Gandhi. So how does Rajmohan fit into the tradition? Lots of other authors, people & topics get discussed too - Tasha Alexander (the Lady Emily Ashton mysteries), Ben McIntyre, Desmond Bagley, Alistair Maclean, Alan Davies (Just Ignore Him), Arthur Ransome (Swallows and Amazons), Paul Gallico (The Snow Goose), Airey Neave and PD James. We'd Like A Word is a podcast & radio show from authors Paul Waters & Stevyn Colgan.

Klaus Schwab, The Great Reset, and No Time To Die

Klaus Schwab recently delivered a keynote address at the 2022 G20 and B20 shindig in Indonesia on the transition into a multi-polar world, as opposed to the world we've been living in where the United States has been the pre-eminent superpower. Starting right around the 2:00 mark, Schwab talks about the fundamental restructuring of the world which needs to be embraced to the end of engineering a bright new future. Yet he admits that all is not so rosy. Schwab talks about the restructuring of the global economy leading to a reduction of income, and therefore the standard of living of regular men and women. Such, they know, is increasing social tension - though not for Schwab, it seems. One could hardly find a more opposite vision to what Make America Great Again has been about, by the way. And pay attention to who is on board with this, including especially the politicians and corporations here in America who think this is grand for all the same reasons they hate Trump and the folks who've voted for and supported him. For those inclined to dismiss such diatribes as conspiracy theory, do note that Schwab being allowed to speak at all at the G20 and B20 summit does say something of his clout, and the widespread acceptance of his ideas. And note then that he says explicitly that their goal requires both government and business being on board. Thus you will make sense of ESG scores and corporations going woke, even when it costs them dearly in their sales revenue and share prices. But what is the G20? And what is the B20? Only this: they are the largest economies and companies in the world, governing one way or another most of the people and wealth on planet Earth. Schwab, for his part, is a German engineer, economist, author, and founder of the World Economic Forum, and has been the chairman of that organization since 1971. But you can't make up his German accent. As many have pointed out, he sounds just like a supervillain from a James Bond film - not just because of the accent, but also because it's paired with the kind of euphemistically articulated megalomaniacal aspirations to godhood we've come to expect of the baddies featured by Ian Fleming type works. If you ask me, Schwab may as well be a supervillain from a James Bond film. In fact, I'm not so sure he isn't one. Maybe this is the real reason why the release of 'No Time To Die' was delayed. But when he talks about using the Metaverse to facilitate global dialogue, and that toward the stated goal of “a more inclusive world," we should understand by now that this is code for you and I being further pressured to affirm and tolerate things we don't believe are true or right. Moreover, the power of global governance and economic constraint will be brought to bear as convincing if we're reluctant. Sustainability is also code. It's a stand-in for the promise we will endure arbitrary redistributions of all our wealth and power - after men like Schwab take their very sizeable cuts, of course. In his case, that cut is currently a salary of over $1 million per year. But that is for the greater good, clearly. Not like yours and my wages. By all means, let them take care of the planet if you want to. Just know that's a front for a one world government. And like the bust of Lenin on the shelf behind Schwab in this film from 2019, this intended global governance is distinctly communistic. Mercifully, there's something stronger than supervillains bent on reshaping the world in their image. The power of love, which God has extended to us in Christ, and which those who belong to God reflect back in turn - not only in word, but also in deeds, and efforts which are both concentrated and sustained on building and conserving what is true, beautiful, and good. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/garrett-ashley-mullet/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/garrett-ashley-mullet/support

My friends decided they wanted to go through all of Ian Fleming's James Bond films, so we are starting with Dr. No starring the one and only Sir Sean Connery. He was the first to portray the iconic character and played him in 6 films. I love these films! I even have a James Bond keychain that I got in Washington, D.C. at The Spy Museum that has 3 of his license plates. Dr. No Drinks (https://summerfruitcup.wordpress.com & https://www.bjtonline.com): Vodka Martini “One Medium-Dry Vodka Martini and mixed how you said Sir, and not stirred” Ingredients 3 oz Vodka 1/4 oz Vermouth Lemon Twist for garnish Ice Directions Fill a cocktail glass with ice. Set it aside. Fill your cocktail shaker (or a pint glass) about ¾ with ice. Add three ounces of vodka or simply add vodka to the top of the ice. (Bartenders' trick: fill the glass with water, then pour the water into your ice-filled shaker. This will determine your ”fill line.”) Add vermouth. A quarter-ounce splash should give you a medium-dry martini. Place the top onto your shaker (or your Boston-style shaker over your pint glass) and shake vigorously until frost forms on the shaker. Empty the ice from the glass and strain the martini into it. Garnish with a lemon twist and enjoy. Red Stripe Beer Hailing from Jamaica, where the film is set, there is little wonder that this is what they drink in Pussfellas Bar. Red Stripe was created by Desnoes & Geddes in 1928. Like the Martini Red Stripe is quite light and very refreshing with a warm hoppiness at the end, a little touch of citrus. The James Bond Gin & Tonic Bond ordered a double gin and tonic and one whole green lime. When the drink came he cut the lime in half, dropped the two squeezed halves into the long glass, almost filled the glass with ice cubes and then poured in the tonic. He took the drink out on to the balcony, and sat and looked out across the spectacular view. As ever a delicious drink that is tart but not overly so. I used Bombay Dry Gin (a very classic style of gin) and it works well although some may prefer to use a gin with a higher ABV. Even so few will be disappointed by this Bond Beverage. Drinking Rules (https://thechuggernauts.com): Take a sip whenever... Someone says “James” or “Bond” (Yes this would mean 3 drinks for the phrase “Name's Bond, James Bond”) Any agent's number (or letter) is mentioned. Such as 007, 006, M, Q, etc… Bond uses one of his gadgets given to him by Q (or anyone else at the agency) Someone gets shot Someone falls crashes Bond gets into his over-the-top car Anyone on screen sips alcoholDrink twice if it's a shaken Martini Take a huge chug whenever... There's a sex scene A chase scene starts Finish your drink whenever... Bond is successfully captured. There's a bit of a grey area in some films on if he was successfully captured, so let's just say any time he is taken somewhere at gunpoint, put in handcuffs, or ends up in a cell. As always, drink responsibly. Follow me on Instagram and Twitter @Line_Drunk, subscribe/follow on your favorite streaming service, tell your friends about the podcast and listen together.

Today I'm in conversation with one of the most talented and brilliant storytellers that I've ever heard, Mr. Christopher Rivas. As many of you longtime listeners know, I used to produce these inspirational variety shows called The Shine between the years of 2014 and 2019, and we did them all over the world; Los Angeles, New York, and London. And that's where I first connected with Christopher because he opened the show for us a couple of times. He's also a podcaster, and his podcast is about as unique and specific as they come. It's called Ruby Rosa. And it's an episodic show that details the legend of Porer Rub Rosa, who is set to be the Dominican diplomat and Latin lover that author Ian Fleming, allegedly based his famous 007-character on, also known as Bond, James Bond. And ever since learning this profound information in college, Christopher, who's half Dominican and half Columbian, and who had been low-key obsessed with James Bond ever since he was a kid, had this full circle moment because he discovered that the coolest, baddest spy of all time was based on somebody from his same Dominican heritage. And this led Christopher to create a one-man show called the Real James Bond was Dominican. But that's not all, Christopher also became a daily meditator in a very funny way. He basically lied to an attractive woman that he was an avid meditator because she was a meditator, and he managed to hide the fact that he actually never meditated a day in his life long enough for her to become his girlfriend.So you can imagine his surprise when she gifted for his birthday with an airline flight to a 10-day silent meditation retreat. And while it was indeed a struggle ever since that silent retreat, Christopher actually did become a daily meditator. Later he wrote a New York Times editorial called. I broke up with her because she's white and that ended up going viral.And so in this conversation, Christopher and I talk about the art of code-switching, and he shares this game that he learned from his father when he was just a child to, uh, to size people up. We talk about what famous Dominican actor inspired Christopher to create his own one-man show based on James Bond.We talked about the African American author who inadvertently motivated Christopher to pursue his mission. Of going all in on his brownness and being brown enough and how he stumbled upon the obscure article about the Real James Bond. We talked about the logistics of how one creates a one-man show and when and why Christopher slept in his car for a period of time.We talked about why his friends called him the White girl Whisperer, and how he handled hate mail from his viral New York Times editorial. We talked about why everything is a story and what are the elements of a good story and how his podcast has evolved. And as usual, our conversation was jampacked with other awesome stories and insights, and I know you're gonna get a ton of inspiration from listening to it.So without further ado, I want to introduce you to the Rebel him. . So without further ado, I want to introduce you to the storyteller himself, Mr. Christopher Rivas.

He was a legit badass, with famous fist fights between street gangs and gun toting American mobsters. Sean Connery's ex-wife made claims of abuse, and though he said some unfortunate things about women in the press, he still denied the allegations.

Happy birthday, Mr. Bond. Yes, this October sees 007 turn 0060 with the 60th anniversary of Dr No, the film that brought Ian Fleming's James Bond to the big screen for the first time. The celebrations begin this weekend with a series of Bond At 60 events at the BFI Southbank and BFI Imax, then a The Sound Of Bond concert at the Royal Albert Hall on Tuesday October 4, headlined by Dame Shirley Bassey, and the debut of Mat Whitecross' documentary, The Sound Of Bond, on Prime Video on October 5. Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson are the producers who have overseen not one, but two, key reboots of the character, through the Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig eras, firmly keeping alive the traditions established by their father, Albert R. 'Cubby' Broccoli. They've been around since the franchise began — Michael cameoed briefly in Goldfinger in 1964, while a very young Barbara toured the world with her father as the movies became a cultural phenomenon in the Sixties — and in this special interview with Empire's Chris Hewitt, the two talk about their relationship with Bond, the movies and actors, through the decades, culminating in the major decision they made with the most recent movie, No Time To Die.

The stock market is plummeting, the polls are tightening, and the Biden administration is just hoping the country doesn't fall apart right before the midterms. The GOP needs to keep the pressure on. Plus CDC Chief Rochelle Walensky tweeted out a selfie getting her fifth(!) Covid shot, and offered up some very vague nonsense about how it might be helpful based on weak trials in a few mice. Then Buck talks about the history of the character James Bond, background of the its author Ian Fleming, and how the next iteration of this timeless fiction classic could be very woke- maybe a non-binary 007? And finally, the “Woman King” movie is out, and once you learn the history of the slave-capturing, mass-beheading Dahomey Tribe of West Africa, you will be stunned that Hollywood tried to make a movie glorifying them in any way. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

The British spy novel was well established long before Ian Fleming's creation of James Bond in the 1950s. And while it came to be identified with the Cold War, thanks to Fleming and subsequent writers like John le Carré, thriller aficionados continued to look back to earlier authors for novels with a different set of stakes. In this episode, Jacke talks to scholar and journalist Juliette Bretan about the issues at work in the spy novels of the 1930s. With Europe in flux, what were the protagonist spies busy doing? And how did those reflect the passions and fears of their creators? Authors discussed include Graham Greene, Christopher Isherwood, Rex Warner (The Wild Goose Chase, The Professor), Eric Ambler (The Dark Frontier, Uncommon Danger, A Coffin for Dimitrios) and Geoffrey Household (Rogue Male).

A sunny hike, with added party tricks, in the pretty countryside around East Worldham. Led ably by members of Walk Alton, Clare discovers the beauty of this part of east Hampshire. Every episode in this series has been suggested by a Ramblings listener. Helen Dudley and Ian Fleming from Walk Alton wrote to the programme and invited Clare to discover more about this very active organisation and the national scheme to which it belongs, Walkers Are Welcome. For its small size, a population of around twenty thousand, Alton has a disproportionately large number of walking groups and two walking festivals, all run by committed volunteers. Today's route is around 7 miles long and starts in the village of East Worldham, two miles east of Alton. They follow the map south, along part of the Hangers Way (hangers are very steep, wooded slopes) to Binswood, an ancient area of woodland managed by the Woodland Trust. Next they head to Shortheath Common, an important area of heathland, before looping back via another part of Binswood and returning to East Worldham via King John's Hill. Joining them en route is Elinor Newman of the South Downs National Park who discusses a rare habitat known as 'quaking bog', and surprises everyone with her uncanny impressions of both nightjars and beetles.

Tying up our 'summer' specials (now autumn), part 4 of 3 (whoops) is this special on radio as propaganda in World War 2. The non-BBC story. Sefton Delmer sent black propaganda from near Bletchley Park into Germany, as Lord Haw-Haw did the opposite, sending radio propaganda from Germany back into Britain. Meanwhile Hilda Matheson (remember her from two episodes ago?) was sending transmissions from the JBC - the Joint Broadcasting Committee - in Woburn Abbey, also near Bletchley Park. And somehow between here, there and everywhere, bouncing between Germany and Britain and across Europe, somehow involving MI5 and Ian Fleming, there's that man again... Peter Eckersley. It's quite a tale, and here to bring it to you is Tim Wander (author of 2MT Writtle and From Marconi to Melba) and Edward Stourton (author of Auntie's War). Plus with the passing of Queen Elizabeth II, we bring you the first broadcast from the most broadcast person in the world (I think) - aged 14, Princess Elizabeth on The Children's Hour in 1940. Next episodes from here? Well it's the end of our summer specials, but the start of our centenary specials! The regular episodes in our 1923 timeline will return in the New Year. But first, a few episodes commemorating and celebrating 100 years of British broadcasting - including an episode on 100 Years in 100 Minutes... and for that we need you!

Imagine instead of James Bond it was…Jaime Bond, Javi Bond, Bondissimo. Well, guess what, y'all? The white, British character at the center of Ian Fleming's super-successful franchise was actually based on a Dominican man. Porfirio Rubirosa was a diplomat, a playboy who spoke five languages, an international polo champion, a race-car driver, a pilot, and he became the richest man in the world⁠—twice. This podcast is the true story of Rubirosa's life, told by me, Christopher Rivas. Who am I? I'm a Dominican-American, author and storyteller… and a lifelong fan of James Bond. Ever since I learned about Rubirosa and the heritage we share… I've wondered: how different might my life have been if my hero growing up looked like me? And what does Rubi's incredible and complicated life have to teach me about love, success, family, Hollywood, code-switching, white-washing, and the roller coaster of finding my true self in a world not made for Brown folks like me?

Occult and esoteric expert Richard Balducci joins the show to present some mindblowing revelations regarding what he states was the occult sacrifice of the original Paul McCartney on 11th September 1966, and his replacement to this day by the individual known as William Wallace Shepherd, or ‘Billy Shears.' Along the way, Richard gets into so much of the symbolism, numerology and astrology surrounding this event, and reveals who he considers to have committed the murder and the reasons for it in a conversation that also links in with Tavistock and British military “intelligence”, Ian Fleming and James Bond, Thomas E. Uharriet's' Memoirs' books, Aleister Crowley, the Church of Satan and so much more.This is not a happy show and comes with the disclaimer that much of the content (presented in video form for maximum clarity) is grisly and disturbing. If what Richard claims is true, however, comprehending how and why it occurred is vital to ensuring the satanic, insidious control system behind it is finally brought to its deserving end.To contact Richard: occultology@gmail.com

Anthony Horowitz knows the advantages and limitations of writing in a major franchise. In his latest James Bond novel, With a Mind to Kill, Horowitz uses his own brand of fast-paced dialogue and gripping storytelling to revitalize the Bond franchise while working within the confines of Ian Fleming's original world. Anthony has written over 40 books, with his Alex Rider series selling more than 19 million copies. To purchase With a Mind to Kill, follow the link below. From Amazon.com: I have over forty-five published novels to my name. The game changer for me was Stormbreaker, the first Alex Rider adventure, published in 2000. There were eleven more books in the series - the latest, Never Say Die, was published in 2017 - and they are now being developed for TV. I have plenty of other children's books out there - I was delighted to discover my Power of Five series (Raven's Gate, Evil Star etc) on sale in a tiny bookshop in Elounda, Crete only a few days ago.

Summary David McCloskey (Twitter; Website) and James Stejskal (Twitter; LinkedIn) join Andrew to discuss writing about espionage. They are both former intelligence officers.   What You'll Learn Intelligence What it is like writing spy fiction as a former practitioner How fact informs fiction Writing as a former analyst compared to as a former operator (James)  Reactions by the intelligence community to practitioners-turned-authors Reflections The heaven and hell of being an author  The process of getting a process And much, much more… Episode Notes Hear two intelligence formers discuss life as current novelists.  Where does fact end, and fiction begin when you are a former CIA officer writing fiction? What parts of your own story bleed into the novel? Are the characters composites of people you knew in your line of work or are they entirely fictional?  To answer these questions and more, this week, I sat down with David McCloskey, former CIA analyst and author of Damascus Station, a book David Petraeus described as “the best spy novel I have ever read,” and James Stejskal, author of Appointment in Tehran, which has been called “a textbook clandestine operation involving…US Army Special Forces and a clandestine CIA Case Officer,” which James would know something about, since he was both.  And… Spy fiction received quite the blow in the space of a 6-month period (Dec 2020-May 2021) which saw the passing of both John Le Carre and Jason Matthews, two formers who served in British and American intelligence. Le Carre was in MI5 and MI6 while Matthews had a long career in the CIA. David and James join a distinguished cast of formers who became novelists, including Ian Fleming, Graham Greene and Dame Stella Rimington.  Quote of the Week "There are far more edits on, short articles I wrote that weren't even going to the president than on the book, so your writing is being critiqued at all levels. I I think when I did write for the PDB [Presidential Daily Brief], I don't think I'm making this up, I believe it was 9 or 10 layers of review. You could probably argue that sometimes that makes it worse, but you have to be able at all stages to roll with the punches and to write and to try to make things very clear."
