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.

It's nearly Christmas (watch out for Krampus kids) and Monts and Nuge are back bring you festive japes (who even says that anymore?) from the merry old land of geekdom. 

Let's crack on shall we?

Pete Rogers directorial debut with horror Little Brown Bird picks up an award 

Writer Corey Brotherson features in the Edge gaming magazine talking about Windrush Tales,a narrative game about the Caribbean rush to 50s Britain (My mum better be in this Corey!)

Monts reveals his role in the upcoming Big Finish Audio Drama The War Doctor Begins: Enemy Mine (sadly no cameo from Nuge but you know it still might be worth a listen).

Oh and the vampire audio drama Nuge mentions is called Impact Winter and is on Spotify.

Questions from the syndicate

Big thanks to Ron for his question - Between film, TV & streaming services (all with mixed results), is the superhero genre saturated, or at least only appealing to its base viewers with no chance of growth?
