Creator of the James Bond Lifestyle (Ep. 9a)

Ever thought what it would be like to go on a James Bond adventure? 007 always travels to the coolest places, does the coolest things, and does it all in style.  This week, I'm honored to have award winning independent film director, audiobook creator, and "How To Live The James Bond Lifestyle" author Paul Kyriazi on the show.

And with me being the huge Bond fan I am, I had a lot of questions to ask and a lot of information to gather for future James Bond lifestyle traveling.
