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.

Matt and Kehaar take another turn off from the Legendary Creators series to speak to James Desborough, Game Designer of Dark and Controversial Games, to speak on his current project; bringing to life John Norman’s “Gor”. This series of novels inspires a number of  reactions across fandom, many of them unfavorable, but it also has its own cult (and as we discuss, Actual Cult) following. We also get into:

  • Adapting properties with devoted followings
  • Gor as a living, gameable world for its inhabitants
  • Dark Fantasy vs The Real World
  • “Butting heads” (James words!) over Gamergate

James website can be found at and he can be seen and heard at
