Simply Syndicated is a UK company which produces a selection of podcasts[1] and began podcasting in August 2005. Simply Syndicated is a featured provider in the UK iTunes Store podcast section [2]. In addition to providing Podcasts, the Simply Syndicated website features forums and blogs for most of its shows.

Simply Syndicated's podcasting output is noted for it's highly informal structure and atmosphere.

History[edit]

During March of 2005, Richard Smith and Tristan Ofield of Anonymous Room Productions[3] began experimenting with podcasting as a means of promoting various feature length and short films, by releasing a series of features covering their new film releases. They then decided that podcasting was a new media which was capable of much more.

A weekly audio show called Movies You Should See was launched in August 2005. The popularity of Movies You Should See led to the need of a larger web host, which came a free domain name, providing the opportunity for Smith to create a web site for Movies You Should See, as well as showcasing new work from Anonymous Room Productions.

In time Simply Syndicated has moved away from Anonymous Room Productions, and is now a separate business within it's own right. The network's line up has now expanded to include nine shows.[4].

In July of 2007, Simply Syndicated was offered the chance to join the Podshow. They turned down this offer, in order to maintain their independence.

Movies You Should See[edit]

The Movies You Should See (MYSS) podcast[5][6] is released once a week, currently on Saturdays, with each episode lasting around an hour. MYSS is also notable for its large volume of in-jokes, something which may confuse the new listener

All the episodes before and including the 1st Birthday special are no longer on the feed but are available to buy from the Simply Syndicated store, as either individual episode download or as part of the 'Movies You Should See Year One' DVDs collection[7].

The show was featured in a Radio Times review of podcasts[8].

Make It So is a podcast[9][10] hosted by Richard Smith and Mike Dawson in which they discuss aspects of the popular TV and films series Star Trek and it's Spin-offs. The show is unstructured and the hosts often take the episode's discussion topic from the shows' forum [11] or from listener suggestions e-mailed in. Make It So is released every Monday.

Make It So Episode Guide

The title Make It So is taken from the "Make it so" command frequently used by Captain Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart), a fictional Starfleet officer in The Next Generation. The command, which is used following an order to prepare for something, like plotting a course to prepare for a trip, or arming torpedoes to prepare for an attack, means "Make the order I just gave you happen."

In August of 2007, Smith and Dawson were made the 'Sci-Fi Super Fans' on Sky Movies. They recorded a series of short discussions that were played over the end credits of a season of Star Wars and Star Trek movies. Each discussion pitted a element from the Star Wars and Star Trek franchises to determine which was better.[12]
