Bond(ing) Over Bond was established in 2015. We are the self proclaimed OFFICIAL unofficial James Bond Podcast. We were founded as a spin-off podcast by the brain trust here at The Lionize Podcast. Bond(ing) Over Bond is a pretty simple idea really. It started as a conversation between Art and Scott while bonding over a James Bond movie in the studio shed after a Lionize podcast recording. Several dozen production meetings later* here we are! The idea is that hosts Arturo & Scott get together & bond over their love of Ian Fleming's James Bond 007.
Bond(ing) Over Bond features 3 podcast formats.
- Original Review
- For Your Eyes Only
An Original Review Podcast is a structured podcast of moderate length. Each of the first 24 Original Review Podcasts covered one 007 film, in order of release, & features our three unique review sections.
- Double-O 30 - each host takes a turn attempting to summarize the film in 30 seconds [which is written out as 00:30 so two zero's or O's and James Bond's code number is 007...never mind if you don't get it by now...].
- Distinguished Debauchery - we discuss the main aspects of a Bond film that, simply put, make it a Bond film; drinking, gambling, suits, cars, gadgets, violence, & the "Bond Girls." In its totality those 7 areas describe the areas of Bond's life that make him who he is, a refined man who has a lustful appetite.
- Running Rankings- we rank each of the 23 [24 after SPECTRE] films against themselves by ranking the; cars, title song, opening sequence, villain, the Bond actor, and then we finish by discussing what we loved, hated, & would take out of the movie along with it's overall realism. We wrap up with loose ends and observations on the film then rank the overall movie.
An Obbjob Podcast is a short podcast with a singular focus. Each podcast will be around 10 - 20 minutes and focus on one topic. Topics vary from a review of an actor’s portal of James Bond throughout all their films, a summary of our complete Running Rankings, news from the world of 007, and more!
Our For Your Eyes Only Podcast is a long form & structure free podcast. Each podcast will cover one 007 film, novel, or James Bond related topic.
