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.

Doning their tin hats the disagreeing duo of Dissecting Worlds turn their scalpels to Alternate History this series.
To open the bowling they're going to limber up with Kim Stanley Robinson's "The Years of Rice & Salt", an exploration of a world in which Europe exited history in the 15th-16th centuries.
This gives an opportunity to discuss alternate histories on the way, and in the process they potentially upset
* quantum physicists 
* Marxists
* Nazis
* Harry Turtledove
* Arthur C Clarke
* the romantic view of history
In the usual blend of confessions, obsessions & mispronunciations and teasers for future episodes in the series.
