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.

Dec 20, 2011

The twinkling lights are all up, there's a chill in the air, little boys and girls are starting to get excited and, somewhere in the distance, a jolly fat man is whipping his elves with a cat-o'-nine-tails to work Harder, damn them, Harder.  It's nearly Christmas!

It is the season of good will to all men - even pedantic sods and giggling morons.  It is also the season of binge eating and drunken arguements.  (I think you know where I'm going here.)  Yes!  It's time, once more for the Gala of Games, the Bonanza of Banter, the Surfeit of Silliness that is our Christmas Cross-Over.

Warning: Explicit Content from the start

It's a more focussed event this year, with only three games, but what games they are!

Clover IS Nicholas Parsons in 'Just A Minute!' (complete with fishnet tights)
Matt IS Lord Alan Sidious, searching time, space and multiple realities for the next 'Sith Apprentice'
Kehaar IS that bloke from the radio who hosts Fighting Talk IN... 'Geeking Talk'

All three are ably assisted, undermined and irritated by Phil, Mattie and Dion.

LEARN - how to survive in a horror film

DISCOVER - the trans-sexual sensation that is The Wicked Witch of the West

GASP - at our ability to construct whole sentences under the influence and still sound convincing

WONDER - how these damn games are scored anyway and...

PONDER - just who is The Best.

Our Intro and Outro music has been kindly provided by John Anealio from Geek Dad.  You can find his Christmas EP at and loads more to boot.

Also included is a snippet from the fantastic 'It's Beginning To look A Lot Like Fish-Men' which you can hear in full at
 and also purchase the full 'A Very Scary Solstice' albums.

You may also notice The March Of The Knights music from Romeo and Juliet.  It sounds an awfully lot like the music from The Apprentice but I'm pretty sure that's just a coincidence.  (Ahem.)

Any other singing is lamentable and should be born with grace and sympathy.  It is Christmas after all...
