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.

In this first episode of the Children of the Atom podcast we talk about how we first discovered the X-Men and what motivated us to podcast about the X-Universe.

We also discuss the original development of the X-Men by Stan Lee, some contemporary influences on the concept, and where the series fits within the rest of the Marvel universe. In the main part of the show we review the first ever X-Men issue released in September 1963. Finally, we talk about which of the first run issues we managed to buy for our collection this month.
