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.

Ok, urgent pub visit done and dusted - look I had to get Summer out of the way so Clover could do a skype interview ok... don't you be judging me

Ok, blurb ahoy -


In which the awooga button is tossed on the ground and comprehensively stomped on so that everyone can get comfy and chat about the uber-fantasy that is Lord of the Rings.

Taking our cue from the Festival In The Shire we talk about the great works from all kinds of angles - discussing them in terms scholarly, as fans having a good time sharing our experiences, and as readers just celebrating Middle Earth for it's depth, history and grandeur.  We also talk a load of old rot, giggle stupidly, mis-quote, mis-understand and mis-appropriate other peoples thoughts and theories.

But, you know, with style.

It's a monster show, so we've had to cut out the adaptations section just to keep it to a reasonable length.  I'm guessing that could make a part 3 all of it's own at some point.
