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 our sixth and final-ish episode, we discuss our present obsession with origins, get rather niche in references to our own podcasts, talk a lot about Spiderman, praise All-Star Superman and try and come up with quick summaries for less well-known characters, and Tim's man-crush of the week is Kyle MacLachlan.
