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.

This time the Dissecting Worlds General staff take a close look at 2000ADs premier war story Rogue Trooper and through it armies in science fiction.
 
On the way they look at (deep breath)
  • Jannissaires  & The Drakan books (& apologies to SM Stirling I don't mean his views are the same as his characters.)
  • Time dilation, post traumatic stress & morally difficult Hawkwind songs.
  • Charley's War & Poppies, Millicom and champgane sipping chateau Generals
  • Robots & the ABC Warriors (including Savage/Invasion)
  • Why fight on a planet's surface when you can blast it from orbit just to be sure?
  • 'Good' Germans, Klingons and Romulons
  • Rogue trooper's tone and British War Comic tradition
  • Retirement plans from Elephantmen to Blade Runner
 
With more call backs than a Richard herring GigI hope folks enjoy it,
