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.

Caught up in an orcstasy of hobbit-love, the Scrolls team talked so long into the night that an entire section of Chapter 8 had to be cut for fear of Melting Your Brains.  Well... it's too late now, obviously, so as Scrolls is taking a short break this month we thought we would share the last of our late night ramblings with you.  

This then, is the Previously Unreleased third part of our Middle Earth Special in which we talk Adaptations - games, plays, movies, music and models.  
Not only that, ladies and gentlemen but we have Additional Bonus Content excavated for you from the dusty archives of Nargothrond.  Shortly after the inaugural Festival-In-The-Shire event last year Clover nabbed a skype chat with one of the guests, Professor Corey Olsen.  Wary of overburdening you with Tolkienalia at the time, it was eventually decided to shelve this interview - but now you can hear it in its entirety.  Tune in and let the Tolkien Professor fix your melted brains.

If you like what you hear you can download his podcasts free of charge here.

Intro/Outro music is, as ever provided by Steadman.  I have also used a snippet from Howard Shore's wonderful soundtrack to The Return Of The King in order to seperate the two sections of the podcast
