Sir Ian Fleming’s James Bond has been a Hollywood mainstay for more than 60 years. In that time, a handful of actors have brought to life the British super spy’s thrilling adventures, and made box-office bank in the process. With the Bond property currently on hiatus as producers work on a bold new direction for the character, the Great Pop Culture Debate wants to look back at all the bombs, the bad guys, and the beauties to determine the Best James Bond Film of all time.

Join Host Eric Rezsnyak, panelists Karissa Kloss and Michael Schwarz, and special secret agent Erik Slader from Podcasters Assemble! and several others shows in the We Can Make This Work (Probably) Podcast Network as they use their license to kill — arguments — as they work to name the Best James Bond Film.
