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 month the DW duo of Kehaar and Matt try to get to grips with leadership in the slippery form of King Arthur.  In a wide ranging discussion they look at such versions of Arthur as:

 

TV’s Merlin (BBC series) and Camelot (Starz series.)

Film’s Excalibur and First Knight

The History of the Kings of Britain by Geoffrey of Monmouth

Marion Zimmer Bradley’s Mists of Avalon

TH White’s entire Once and Future King series

Bernard Cornwell’s Warlord series

Lord Alfred Tennyson’s poetry

D’Morte D’Arthur by Sir Thomas Mallory

 

& in the process they invoke:

 

SunTsu’s The Art of War

John Adair’s Action Centred Leadership model

Former English Cricket Captain & Psychoanalyst Mike Brearley’s ‘The Art of Captaincy.’

 

And fall out over Vikings !
