Preview the first track of the Andrew McIlvaney Christmas Album.
Thrilling segway chases and multiple entendres abound in The Vine’s James Bond tribute episode.
Our sister series The Vine Audio Programme is back, and as incapable as ever of just sitting down to record a low-key podcast about video games.
On a personal level, I had an incredible amount of fun with the overblown, pseudo-cinematic action scenes that open and close the episode. And it’s entirely possible re-scoring the James Bond theme with my bare hands is the manliest thing I will ever do.
Listen to the first eight minutes below, or head over to The Vine for the complete tale.
Opening Sequence Credits:
Written by Hyle Russell
Starring Chad McCanna, Janell McCanna, Hyle Russell and Alastair Craig

“It’s mediocre post-John-Rhys-Davies Sliders for the podcasting generation!” declare the critics.
The new season of our hotter, sluttier sister series is a fresh start and a great jumping-on point for new listeners.
I’ve neglected the fact that this is about Donkey Kong and Nintendo games. That’s because we actually want you to listen. Think of it as a launching pad for wacky adventures and unrelated comedy, and a subject the hosts are just as keen to avoid.
We’re particularly proud of our Halloween 2011 episode: a slow-burn horror movie in which the hosts debate the scientific impossibility of zombies while boarding up the doors against them. I guarantee you’ll love it. Unless, heaven forbid, you’re put off by coarse language and ten-minute amputation scenes.
