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.

Nov 15, 2011

This month we wander through the Wardrobe of Geek Analysis to the magical land of Narnia. Joined by Timothy Swann of the Psycomedia (and others!) podcast, we plunge into the frozen wastes of fantasy godhood in the shape of everyone’s favourite Divine Lion.

Subjects Covered:

- Lewis vs Tolkien, the Inklings, and parallel development

- His Dark Materials, Phillip Pullman and unintended messages

- Creation and Management of your own universe

- The Merits of Biting your enemy on the face over turning the cheek

- Leaders as Servants

- The Space Trilogy and Middle Earth Time Travel!

- And Much More!



Arthur C Clarke was of course a member of the British Interplanetary Society, a group of writers and engineers who were closely involved in the early British Space Program and Blue Streak Program in the 1950s/1960s. He never helped out the Doctor or battled alien ghosts at Hobb's end.(To our knowledge...)

The Charity EP Tim mentions is here: http://www.musicglue.net/purereasonrevolution/ and he has been kind enough to post his intimidating 13 pages of notes here:  https://docs.google.com/document/d/1UrXvqMlrIA_N6fUy-BwlM_lUpNeuHUo99tDP-qyXNPw/edit
He is also on twitter @tetrachangel and Psycomedia is a quick google away.
