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.

Tim and Max Solve All The Problems With Popular Culture is the newest podcast in the stable of winged horses that is the Geek Syndicate Network. The podcast aims to do exactly what it says on the tin - young bucks Tim Swann and Max Barnard identify a key area where popular geek culture falls down and then try and come up with some ways that both the creators and the audience can fix it. 
In our first episode, we discuss fear of change, and how both the audience, the creators and their bosses all fall foul of this fear. In the course, we discuss the New 52 (because you haven't had enough of that yet!), panel shows, the joy of Star Trek XI and The Clone Wars TV Series, and why changing to include basic human decency might help everyone out.
