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 is Bags of Action. The podcast is devoted to action movies, both old and new, but all of them awesome! In this episode Steve and Pete talk about Homefront from 2013 starring Jason Statham. This is the third in our Statham trilogy and so far this trilogy has been pretty disappointing. Both hosts had low expectations going in, so did it live up to them?

This film has a well known cast with some big names including James Franco, Wynona Rider,  Frank Grillo, Clancy Brown and Kate Bosworth.

For the next three months we are going to be doing a trilogy devoted to what is probably an unlikely action hero, John Cusack. We've decided on what the first two films are going to be for June and July, but you, the listener, get to vote and decide on what we will be watching in August. So, watch the trailers for these films and then cast your vote on here, or on the Facebook group.
