Talking Spectre and The Simultaneous Allure and Absurdity of James Bond Films.
Welcome to TC's Movie Podcast, which is pretty much exactly what it sounds like. Wanna talk movies? Hey, so does TC! So listen up.

Either way, really. Find the archives here.
The focus this week is the new James Bond movie, Spectre. On to talk about it is Mike Sirois, my coworker at KTCK 1310 AM The Ticket. He and I work together on the 10 to noon weekday show at the station, and he has his own program on Saturdays, too.
Like most males living today, we've both seen a lot of Bond movies. And, given that, we agree: The last four in the series have been a definite break from the rest of the franchise.
Is that a good thing? Is it a bad thing? Could it possibly be both? We dig into that here, and also acknowledge that we both really want to go to Mexico.
So listen in if that sounds up your alley.
