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.

Finally, please please please do have a wander over to and join in their mamoth 36 hour live podcast event to raise money for Comic Relief. Here's some words from the Super Pod's site to give you a hint of what will be on offer from 9am on Saturday March 25th until 10pm Sunday March 26th:

The Southampton Super-Pod is planned to be a 36 hour live podcast in March 2017. Super-Pod will bring together several great local podcasts for this live spectacular show in aid of Comic Relief.

There will be live versions of different podcasts throughout the 36 hours, interspersed with mash-up shows, challenges, interviews and a whole lot of fun. It only took a matter of hours from coming up with the idea to contacting our first potential podcasters, and we had a great response with several confirming their interest straight away!

Joining us in some capacity will be the Dead Piett Society, Gallifrey Stands, Stacey’s Pop Culture Parlour, The Dredgeland Podcast Spectacular, Nintendo Podcast System, 2 Grown Men. And many more!

For the details of all confirmed shows, check out our schedule, which will be updated regularly as we get closer to the event weekend.
