So as well as doing Geek Syndicate David Montieth has his own podcast 'The Naked Geek'. Seeing as one of the episodes had him chatting with his Geek Syndicate co-founder Barry Nugent we thought GS listeners make like to have a listen. If you like the format Dave has many more Naked Geek Episodes on his feed.

Listen to the banter as they explore their friendship, origins, traumas and dig into how life's mental fallout has affected Barry's creativity.
