This week's podcast sees the return of Robert Sellers. Long time listeners will remember Robert from his first JBR appearance talking about his book, 'The Battle For Bond,' (podcast #012) way back in 2014.

Robert is back with a new Bond book titled, 'When Harry Met Cubby: The Story of the James Bond Producers.'

Cubby Broccoli and Harry Saltzman remain the most successful producing partnership in movie history. But their relationship was fraught almost from the very beginning. With such contrasting personalities, their interactions often span out of control. They managed to drive away their coveted star, Sean Connery, and ultimately each other.

No other film franchise inspires tourism the way the James Bond series does. From Switzerland’s revolving Piz Gloria restaurant that was featured prominently in “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service” to Thailand’s island of Khao Phing Kan where the climax of “The Man with the Golden Gun” was set, Bond movie locations continue to attract countless visitors each year. And topping the travel bucket list of every serious Bond fan is the country of Jamaica, where scenes from “Dr. No,” “Live and Let Die,” and the upcoming “No Time to Die” were shot.

This week, Variety writer, Matt Chernov joins us to talk about his recent Jamaican 007 adventure.
