Boozing & Bonding

The alcohol-fueled James Bond retrospective podcast

Two friends (Keegan and Chris) rewatch every James Bond film and pair it with a delectable alcoholic beverage themed to the film they’re watching. They watch the movie, drink, and then things get sloppy.

New Episodes monthly on the 007th!

  • S-Branch 002 – Santa Bond
    on 16 March, 2020 at 6:40 am

    It’s the long-delayed return of our sober sister podcast: S-Branch! Speaking of long-delayed, Chris gives Keegan an out of season Christmas gift, and we revisit cut content from our Goldfinger episode. Listen to the episode.

  • 0012 – For Your Eyes Only
    on 8 March, 2020 at 11:17 pm

    While enjoying some warm glühwein (mulled wine) the Boozing & Bonding Boys make a startling discovery: it’s harder to pay attention to serious movies when you’re drunk. Listen as they struggle to recall the plot of the (comparatively) grounded Bond film “For Your Eyes Only” (1981). Enjoy the good, the bad, and the uncomfortable in this retrospective Bond outing, that looks back on the past and paves the way for the rest of Bond’s films to come. Listen to the episode.

  • 0011 – Moonraker
    on 9 February, 2020 at 8:08 am

    Pack your bags folks! It’s time to blast off with Roger Moore’s 1979 Bond film Moonraker!! So grab your Tang and vodka, and get Astro-drunk with Keegan and Chris as they navigate the most cartoony of Bond’s outings. It’s a film where laser fights fit right in with a hovercraft gondola, a double-taking pigeon, and the most farfetched thing, love at first sight. Also, Jaws is back! Yay! Listen to the episode.

  • 0010 – The Spy Who Loved Me
    on 8 January, 2020 at 6:33 pm

    Return with Roger Moore’s James Bond (or Mr Bund as some know him) for his 1977 film: The Spy Who Loved Me. A film where things seem familiar… maybe too familiar. Sharks, nukes, and Russians? Check, check and check! Join Keegan and Chris as they get tipsy on Moscow mules and become a pair of rude, rude boys this episode. Also, Jaws might be a vampire! Find out why by listening to the episode! *CHOMP* Listen to the episode.

  • 009 – The Man with the Golden Gun
    on 9 December, 2019 at 5:09 am

    Roger Moore returns, and his Bond is at peak asshole in the 1974 film The Man with the Golden Gun! Listen as we gush about Christopher Lee, be charmed by Nick Nack, be confused about the film’s Asian representation, and rage over a poorly placed slide whistle. A couple of tropical “Golden Gun” cocktails help us take both good and the bad, so join us for the ups and downs of this perfectly serviceable film. Listen to the episode.

  • 008 – Live and Let Die
    on 7 November, 2019 at 4:06 pm

    We’re back with season 2: The Roger Moore Era!! Keegan and Chris head down to New Orleans, sippin’ sazeracs, and watching the funky fresh (and a bit funky stale) 1973 film Live and Let Die. Enjoy crocodiles, massive boat chases, a kick-ass theme song, and problematic depictions of black characters and culture. This film has it all! Listen to the episode.

  • The Bondies (Season 1 Finale)
    on 7 May, 2019 at 8:25 am

    For the final episode of our first season, we do something a little different. We make an award show!! It’s the perfect way to look back at all the films, and drinks we’ve enjoyed so far. We decide the victors in numerous categories, along with some help from our listeners. All while “enjoying” classic vodka martinis (and a bunch of olives.) — Hosted by Chris Nyarady and Keegan Flick-Parker Edited by Chris Nyarady Logo by Keegan Flick-Parker Boozing & Bonding Theme by MissingNo (Check them out at missingnoband.bandcamp.com) Website: www.boozingandbonding.com Listen to the episode.

  • S-Branch 001 – We’re Sober Now!
    on 7 April, 2019 at 11:21 pm

    In our first episode of S-Branch (the sober sister podcasts to Boozing & Bonding), Chris has some lingering thoughts about Goldfinger, and the boys actually finally make rules for their James Bond drinking game.

  • 007 – Diamonds Are Forever
    on 17 March, 2019 at 5:28 am

    Time to play a little game called “where are the frickin’ diamonds?!” We bid farewell to Sean Connery in perhaps the most polarizing film we’ve explored yet: the silly Las Vagas romp known as Diamonds Are Forever. And we cheer Sean Connery’s goodbye from the show with a Black Velvet cocktail. Listen to the episode.

  • 006 (Part 2) – On Her Majesty’s Secret Service
    on 12 February, 2019 at 10:40 am

    George Lazenby might be a one-and-done Bond, but we’re not done talking about this movie! It’s the exciting conclusion to our 2 part “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service” epic! What did we think about this all-new, all-different Bond movie? And about the film’s controversial ending? We slam back another Tim Tam Slam and talk all about it! — Hosted by Chris Nyarady and Keegan Flick-Parker Edited by Chris Nyarady Logo by Keegan Flick-Parker Boozing & Bonding Theme by MissingNo (Check them out at missingnoband.bandcamp.com) Listen to the episode.

  • 006 (Part 1) – On Her Majesty’s Secret Service
    on 7 February, 2019 at 10:14 am

    George Lazenby takes over the role of Bond, and we have so much to talk about! So much in fact, that this is our first two-part episode! So join us in part 1 of our discussion of “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service” where we disagree on the film’s music, agree on how awesome the Bond girl Tracy is, and we cozy up with some boozy hot chocolates and coffees as Keegan teaches Chris the finer points of a Tim Tam Slam. — Hosted by Chris Nyarady and Keegan Flick-Parker Edited by Chris Nyarady Logo by Keegan Flick-Parker Boozing & Bonding Theme by MissingNo (Check them out at missingnoband.bandcamp.com) Listen to the episode.

  • 005 – You Only Live Twice
    on 7 January, 2019 at 7:23 pm

    We share some sake and journey to the land of the rising sun for the mixed-bag Bond film known as You Only Live Twice. Take joy in a tiny helicopter, cringe at outdated stereotypes, cheer for The Rock’s grandfather, be confused at the choice of trying to make Sean Connery look like a Japanese man. This episode has it all! — Hosted by Chris Nyarady and Keegan Flick-Parker Edited by Chris Nyarady Logo by Keegan Flick-Parker Boozing & Bonding Theme by MissingNo (Check them out at missingnoband.bandcamp.com) Listen to the episode.

  • 004 – Thunderball
    on 9 December, 2018 at 8:24 am

    We jump into some familiar waters as we watch Thunderball and drink the rum-based cocktail known as “Sharkbite.” The movie recap gets incredibly sloppy as our drunken ramblings find it difficult to separate this film from Never Say Never Again, and we pitch some new James Bond spin-off movies. 4 episodes in, and we’re already jumping the shark?? Join us to find out! — Hosted by Chris Nyarady and Keegan Flick-Parker Edited by Chris Nyarady Logo by Keegan Flick-Parker Boozing & Bonding Theme by MissingNo (Check them out at missingnoband.bandcamp.com) Listen to the episode.

  • 003 – Goldfinger
    on 7 November, 2018 at 6:19 pm

    We sip on mint juleps as we watch Goldfinger. In this episode Goldfinger talks about how much he loves gold, Chris talks about how much he loves Oddjob, we all giggle at Pussy Galore’s name, and Keegan pitches some better, slightly less sexist one-liners for Bond. Join us for one of our favorite Bond films paired with (so far) our least favorite drink. — Hosted by Chris Nyarady and Keegan Flick-Parker Edited by Chris Nyarady Logo by Keegan Flick-Parker Boozing & Bonding Theme by MissingNo (Check them out at missingnoband.bandcamp.com) Listen to the episode.

  • 002 – From Russia With Love
    on 7 October, 2018 at 10:58 am

    Our second outing with Sean Connery as Bond leads to a surprisingly emotional journey and the first #TrainFight of many to come. Join us as we watch what many folks say is their favorite Bond film, From Russia With Love, while we drink the most obvious drink we could pair with this movie: White Russians. — Hosted by Chris Nyarady and Keegan Flick-Parker Edited by Chris Nyarady Logo by Keegan Flick-Parker Boozing & Bonding Theme by MissingNo (Check them out at missingnoband.bandcamp.com) Listen to the episode.

  • 001 – Dr. No
    on 7 September, 2018 at 7:29 am

    We go back to where it all started with the first James Bond film, Dr. No, while enjoying a delicious mango rum cocktail. Oh ya, and there’s also a dragon. That’s in there too.
