Geek Syndicate


In 2006, the Geek Syndicate was born. And who came roaring out but a pair of crazy-yet-loveable geeks by the names David “Monts” Monteith and Barry “Nuge” Nugent. Producing a weekly (well most of the time) podcast celebrating and commenting all aspects of geek life GS is one of the longest running geek related podcasts in the UK. It’s critically acclaimed, irreverent, touching, intellectual, nonsensical, fairly drunken, incredibly sexy, hilarious…er…and stuff.

May 9, 2011

This time it's an all Northern trio as the pest from the west Kehaar is joined by old sparing partner Grampus and Empress of the Earphones Stacey Whittle.
 
Fangs for downloading because we're getting into the sweaty and saline world of the social science in Vampire Fiction.
 
On the way there:
  • Boffin' with Buffy
  • Homo-Erotica with Anne Rice and the Lost Boys
  • Feral antics in True Blood and others
  • Frustration with Laura K Hamilton
  • Deviance with Dresden
  • Debonair Dracula and dirty fingernailed peasant vampires.
  • Off kilter takes like 'I am Legend' and 'Let the right one in.'

And many more sundry genre Vampires are looked at in a frank and jovial look at the subject.
