The (small) checks are in the mail

Recently, The Bond Bulletin put out a survey for James Bond fans to fill out. On March 30, it put out the results.

The survey went over *a lot of territory*. One aspect concerned Bond fan content creators who fans actually followed.

The runaway leader was David Zaritsky who has a YouTube channel called The Bond Experience. (David has managed this despite having me as a guest for two episodes.)

David was followed by fellow YouTubers Calvin Dyson, and Joe Darlington. The MI6 James Bond website (which breaks a lot of Bond film news) No. 4, with James Bond Radio at No. 5.

The survey even collected information on write-in votes. Amazingly, The Spy Command came in at No. 2 among the write-ins (behind Bond Suits). You can see all the write-ins at the 1:01:45 mark of The Bond Bulletin’s video (embedded below)

This post is mostly intended as being as humorous (particularly given the headline). But there was one thing that caught my eye. About 95 percent respondents were male.

To be sure, such surveys aren’t scientific. In this case, the survey reflects the opinions of the most engaged, most intense Bond fans.

I know, even anecdotally, there are a lot of women Bond fans out there. Still it’s something to keep in mind.

Anyway, you can view the complete Bond Bulletin video concerning its survey results below. It runs a little over an hour.

  1. My opinion. Zaritsky is a jackass.

    Glad “The Spy Command” is still being recognized; an offshoot of HMSS.

    Be well, Bill.

  2. I found the survey results rather interesting, really glad to see james bond youtubers like david zaritsky, come in at no.1 calvin dyson. And josepth darlington come in close, they’re commitment to the james bond community on youtube over the years is very commendable and many fans alike. However, it’s good to see “the spy command” gets a mention somewhere there great work by managing editor bill koenig over the years. James bond radio is also up there with the other youtubers. The james bond survey results shows that there is an active james bond community in the james bond universe.
