Welcome to the latest podcast on the Geek Syndicate Network.
We've had so much fun recording the Christmas game-show
episodes over the last few years, we've decided to take the show on
the road every three months. Each episode of Battle Gods Of
Pod will pit three contestants against each other in a series of
games specifically designed to test their podcasting skills and
geek knowledge. The winner of each episode will go forward to
the Christmas special for the ultimate showdown.
Series 1 is
hosted by Dion Winton-Polak. This pilot episode
features the well oiled muscles and silver tongues of Christophe
Montoya, Barry Nugent and Phil Ambler. Games include New
Testaments, Speaking In Tongues, Convert The Masses and
Gotterdammerung (as well as playing for time, playing hard to get
and playing silly buggers.)
would be happy to receive any and all constructive feedback on this

(Please note, for this first series we are sticking to
podcasters within the Geek Syndicate family, but next year we will
begin to welcome people from all other areas of geekdom.)
Credits where credit's due:
If you discover somebody new and want to hear more from them after
the show, track down their reviews and articles on our website, and
also catch them on their own podcasts:
one of the Trailer Trash Two, who analyse and discuss the latest
happenings in the world of cinema. He can be found on
twitter @montoc1701 and hanging around street corners at
Dion on Scrolls, the podcast for literary geekdom
chatting about Fantasy, SF and Horror books more or less monthly.
(Ok, less.) He can be abused on twitter @Phlambler but he'd really prefer to have a
a Book Group alongside of Scrolls, and tries
to pop up in other places where he can. Bit of a slag,
really. You can molest him on Twitter @Dion_Scrolls or e-mail him email@example.com if you prefer
The music we use is called 'Battle Gods of the Universe.' It
is performed by Domine
and comes from their album 'Emperor
Of The Black Runes' (which you can purchase at all reputable
sound effects all come from freesound, which is a fabulous resource.
