Here’s what some lovely people had to say about Cult Friction!

“Amazing Show, Very professional with fantastic guests and a great blog to boot.”

“Mark and his team are undeniably professional. Mark and the gang go out of their way to go to press screenings and award shows as well as producing interesting documentary features. They are so much more than a group of people talking on the radio. They use their experiences and inputs to review different DVDs, films and games. Long live Geeks and Nerds!”

“Becasue not only are the topics well researched by the witty presenters who bounce off each other nicely; its the only radio show that meets my audio needs entirely. CULT FRICTION RULES!”

“Nerd-tastic Show!”

“A radio show that represents a section of Goldsmiths rarley seen. Excellent coverage of presigious events such as the BAFTA Video Game Awards and the Royal Television Society Awards.”

“Purley because there is a perfect balance of personalities on the show who work well together. The content is interesting and well researched. Ace!”

“Amazing celebs and interviews. All round slickest show on Wired!”
