All published episodes of Bondpodden

• Episode 7: Doctor No (published 8 August 2021)
The first Bond film premiered ten years after writer Ian Fleming started working on the first Bond novel, Casino Royale (1953). Fleming, director Terence Young and actor Sean Connery all contributed in establishing the character of secret agent James Bond 007 with a licence to kill, who soon became a worldwide phenomenon.

• Episode 6: For Your Eyes Only (published 8 August 2021)
For Your Eyes Only is most likely Roger Moore's greatest performance as Bond. After Moonraker (1979), it was time to go back to the roots of Bond. The charming gentleman Moore combined his unique sense of humour with a certain seriousness that did not characterize the previous Bond movies. Roger was sensitive about a couple of scenes that was particularly violent, but they ultimately were included because they worked so well in the picture. The guest in this episode is Esse Hellberg, who has great knowledge about Roger Moore in particular. Moore, before starring as James Bond, portrayed Simon Templar and Lord Brett Sinclair in the great TV-series The Saint and The Persuaders.

• Episode 5: Tomorrow Never Dies (published 8 August 2021)
Brosnan expert Gabriel von Rosen returns to the show to discuss the second Bond film starring Pierce Brosnan, the prophetic Tomorrow Never Dies.

• Episode 4: The Spy Who Loved Me (published 8 August 2021)
Writer of Swedish movie magazine FLM, Tobias Rydén Sjöstrand, is the guest of this episode. He explains why and how The Spy Who Loved Me is Roger Moore's best Bond film. The film, directed by Lewis Gilbert, has excellent music and lots of homages to other movies and the most exciting opening sequence of the series after the modest reception of The Man with the Golden Gun.

• Episode 3: GoldenEye (published 4 August 2021)
In this episode, film aficionado Gabriel von Rosen explains the greatness of the 1995 film GoldenEye. The movie has an interesting place in film history being the first Bond film adventure to take place after the fall of the Berlin wall.

• Episode 2On Her Majesty's Secret Service (published 30 July 2021)
The guest of this episode is Anders Frejdh, founder of one of the world's most comprehensive websites on Bond, with over 7000 pages in both Swedish and English: From Sweden With Love. Frejdh is also the manager of George Lazenby, who starred in one movie as Bond. And what a movie! The plot closely follows the novel, the score by John Barry is the best of the series, and actors like Telly Savalas and Diana Rigg together with Lazenby under the direction of Peter Hunt establishes dynamic and thrilling scenes. Frejdh tell us the story of Lazenby's later career, and the progression of the Bond series after the film's release.

• Episode 1: The Man with the Golden Gun (published 29 July 2021)
Johny Nilsson first saw The Man with the Golden Gun at an outdoors theatre in Greece 1975 and remembers it as a magic experience. The plot of the film revolved around the first OPEC crisis of the 1970s, when oil prices skyrocketed. Professional killer Scaramanga has gotten hold of a Solex, an item that can channel solar energy, and Bond wants it. It makes for a thrilling duel.
