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.

The Northern Duo are joined by the muscled Mexican (well Ohio) Megaton might of El Gorro of the Talk Without Rhythm Podcast. With his expert help they dissect the work of two very different and very eighties film Directors - the Olympian celebrated Steven Spielberg and perhaps the under appreciated Chthonian counterpart John Carpenter. Juxtaposing these Titans they discuss


* their careers and sensibility

* Cinematic What ifs

* their spiritual love child Stranger Things

* the 70s zeitgeist and 80s movie making

* the Directors legacy

* drive thrus, time and distance across the Pond

* Nigel Kneale and HP Lovecraft

* Misteps and Highlights!
