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.

Stand By For Action! Fighting off the forces of technical disaster we are back to continue with our series on Legenday Creators, this time a transatlantic matchup from the 1960s - Gene Roddenberry and Gerry Anderson. We range over their careers and creations, alighting upon:

    •    Technical vs Social visions of the future
    •    Progressive casting battle in earlier periods vs the perils of pulp villiany
    •    Anderson in Supermarionation vs Anderson in Live Action
    •    Roddenberry vs his own Legacy in the Star Trek Franchise
    •    Roddenberrys Thunderbirds and Andersons Star Trek
