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.

In this episode 00Scouse & the Greatest Living Yorkshireman [citation needed] debate James Bond - popular culture's platonic ideal of a spy. They fail to discuss post-Imperial Britain's identity crisis (which will have to feature in the conclusions episode) but look at 

: gender & sex in bond (including the BDSM elements)

: leading pastiches

: anti-Bonds

: race & patriotism 

: best & worse of the franchise
