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.

As it’s the festive period once again our Two Wise(ish) Men take on the subject of family, for good, but mostly, it seems, for ill. In amongst the discarded wrapping and indigestion tablets, we cover: 

  • Orphans Everywhere - from Treasure Island to Batman to Harry Potter
  • Fathers, surrogate, missing, good and bad
  • The skew towards male relationships and the (too few) good examples of female-led families
  • The evolution of family relations in Gaming; The Last of Us and Bioshock Infinite. 
  • Joss Whedon and Families being where you find them. 

As a bonus, we’ve swapped out the Bookshelf for a short outtakes reel. Happy Holidays to one and all!
