Before Daniel Craig’s iconic version of 007 takes on Freddy Mercury in No Time To Die on 12 November, fans of Bond can get in the right headspace with the movie’s official podcast. No Time To Die: The Official James Bond Podcast landed on Apple, Spotify, Acast and all other major podcast providers on Wednesday, set to give us six weekly episodes before the film’s debut.
It couldn’t come soon enough. With many of us still stuck in quarantine, cycling through everything on Netflix, why not listen to Daniel Craig, Rami Malek, Ana de Armas and the entire cast hype up the super-spy’s latest adventure?
Providing “exclusive interviews and behind the scenes access”, each episode will cover a unique aspect of the Bond franchise. From the craft of its films, the series’ iconic villains and side characters, the exotic locations 007 typically finds himself in and the legacy of a decades-old franchise entering its twenty-fifth chapter.
Film critic James King will host pretty much the entire cast including director Cary Joji Fukunaga, producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, composer Hans Zimmer (who will debut exclusive scores on the podcast) along with Billie Eilish and brother Finneas O’Connell who co-wrote and produced the movie’s theme song. Any hardcore fans of the franchise will likely find fascinating insights in the official Bond 25 podcast.
For those only interested in a specific topic, the episodes are as follows:
- Episode One: Bond in Context
- Episode Two: Bond Around the World
- Episode Three: A Name to Die For: Allies and Enemies of Bond
- Episode Four: The Craft of Bond
- Episode Five: Clothes, Tech and Cars
- Episode Six: Being 007
