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.

Its Killer Space Robots (technically cyborgs) and Fascist Analogies as two 70s genre stalwarts go head to head. From the UK we have Terry Nation, of Daleks, Blakes 7 and the Survivors, and from across the Atlantic we have Glen A Larson, bringing Battlestar Galactica, Buck Rogers, Knight Rider and more! Joined by Alasdair Stuart (@alasdairstuart) we discuss:

Creative Conflicts with Nations work on the Survivors
Blakes 7 and it’s apparent lack of Legacy
The Heirs to Larson’s “episode of the week” format
Terry Nation’s Knight Rider and Glen A Larson’s The Survivors
And more!

Alasdair can be heard on Escape Pod , Pseudopod and Podcastle.
