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.

Back from festive indulgences, Dissectingbots K33-R and M4-T take a look at the constructed creatures that inhabit science fiction worlds as servants and slaves - whether the world admits that or not. We talk about:

 

  • Droids in the Star Wars Universe (excluding The Force Awakens, so we’re spoiler free) and robots in general
  • Replicants in Blade Runner and other “biological” servants
  • Legal grey areas in growing your own humans (or sub-humans)
  • Emotional Distance and how easy society finds it to ignore real injustices, and how that applies to Droid/Replicant rights
  • ...and more!

 

Keehar has a bumper-length bookshelf on period weaponry for all your time-travelling needs. Links to what he discusses are:
