SHOW RUNDOWN:

We have two special guests. One is an accomplished nerd author, award-winning filmmaker and leading dork thinker. He is Mark A. Altman, author, along with Edward Gross,  of the fantastic new book, So Say We All: The Complete, Uncensored, Unauthorized Oral History of Battlestar Galactica. The other guest is my occasional co-host Chris Smith whose accomplishments are a mystery.

We talk a bit about Mark’s Battlestar Galactica book… We plan to have Ed Gross on soon to dive deep… but also to tease the duo’s next book which may or may not be an oral history of the James Bond series. That brings us to the subject of tonight’s discussion… James Bond and specifically 1977’s The Spy Who Loved Me.

Mark is also the host of the fantastic new nerd podcast the 4:30 Movie, which dives deep into all kinds of movie culture. We’ll talk about that too.
