Episode 89: Skyfall

March 29, 2021
Daniel Craig as James Bond in Skyfall

As Easter Sunday approaches, Matt and Adam talk about violence, resurrection, and the 2012 James Bond film Skyfall. In the first segment, the two discuss the many iterations of Bond and whether the character and genre have any lasting significance. In the second segment, the conversation centers on James Bond and Resurrection Sunday. Does Bond have anything new to add to our Easter theologies? Finally, Adam talks about Holy Week poetry and Matt considers the art world.
