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.

Hello there, thanks for joining us again on our jaunt through the joyous worlds of fantasy, science fiction and horror.  Who knows what we may find?  (Well I do, I suppose.)  Here's a quick run down -
News Bites:
Before any journey it's always best to fortify yourself, so we take a bit of time to chew over the latest literary events.
Author's Delight:
We begin with a short stroll in the company of a seasoned explorer - a chance to chat with an author about one of their all-time favourite reads.  On this occasion we're joined by Adam Christopher from Angry Robot, to discuss Veronica.

The Flash Fiction Challenge:
Our listeners take a short dash up the creative slope each month in our writing challenge.  In this segment we read out the top tales and talk about them.

Night at the Round Table:
The picnic blankets out and the wine has begun to flow.  Must be time to take in the view, show down and indulge in a rambling discussion.
Author Interview:
Finally, we metaphorically hole-up in a pub, get drunk and talk to strangers until the taxi turns up.  Fortunately, James Treadwell is a congenial companion, as well as a damned fine writer.
Competition time:
On the way home we rashly offer up not one, but two great books in a dead easy competition, because you're our Best Friend and we Love you.  No, no, we really Do!  (Ooh.  Is it me or has the world gone a bit spinny?)
Contact us via e-mail at / tweet @Dion_Scrolls @Phlambler or @Gouldshire or leave us your thoughts with your actual voice by Skyping me at dion.winton.polak
Scrolls is looking for a lighter and more agile format, so listen in horrified fascination as the very hungry 
caterpillars continue their metamorphosis.  Feedback is welcomed in the Comments section below (as are author recommendations and ways to squeeze more reading time out of a jam-packed week!)
