0027: This Call Is Being Recorded

Does the scale of the villain's plot affect the quality of the adventure? 

We explore a hypothesis that the effectiveness of a James Bond film is related to the scale and stakes of the villain's plot. Along the way we discover a SPECTRE call centre, a firmware update to ATAC, MI6's station in Singapore doing overtime, Judi Dench's air miles, Bolivian oil changes, and why not just leave Scaramanga alone. 

The recording took place on September 27th in the USA, UK, and Spain.
