Supercontext: Casino Royale, by Ian Fleming (with guest Van Jensen)

Together with guest Van Jensen, we dissect the original James Bond source material. We look at Ian Fleming’s life and possible wish fulfillment, as well as how he wrote and published this post-World War II spy story. And of course, we’d be remiss if we didn’t also discuss Bond’s misogyny and nationalistic fantasizing.
