Warning: Nothing to do with computer security!

Graham Cluley's Desert Planet Picks

Here’s something a bit different (and utterly unrelated to computer security).

Outside of my normal day job, I’m an obsessive fan of the BBC TV series “Doctor Who.”

One of my favourite Doctor Who podcasts was “The Blue Box Podcast”, hosted by JR Southall, Lee Rawlings, Matt Barber and Simon Brett. I say was because that podcast came to an abrupt halt in early December.

But fear not, JR and his pals have emerged phoenix-like from the flames to form a brand new podcast, entitled “Strangers in Space”.

And I was honoured to be invited onto an early episode of the reincarnated show to discuss my Desert Planet Picks.

The idea is this – I have been sent to a deserted planet, and can only take eight things with me:

  • A book (fiction or non-fiction)
  • A film
  • Drink
  • A type of food
  • Music (song or album)
  • Companion
  • One classic Doctor Who story (1963-89)
  • One modern Doctor Who story (2005-present)

I can’t promise you much security-related in this podcast, but you may get to know me a little better if you listen to it.

You can subscribe to the “Strangers in Space” podcast in iTunes/Apple Podcasts, and all good podcast apps.

Thanks to JR for inviting me on the show. It was a lot of fun.
