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 our Northern Hobgoblins debate Orcs and their place in geek fiction including:

     Are Orcs racist or snobbish or both?

     The Noble Savage

     Other narratives of the Lord of the Rings

     Glorantha's Trolls and hateful Broo

     Walking bags of experience points and the morally acceptable FPS cannon fodder

     More French philosophers than ever before!

     Sci-Fi Orcs

     and of course numerous digressions.....
