Satisfying the inner geek

desertislandgeek Does the idea of being marooned on a desert island appeal to you?

Metaphorically, it appeals to me and so I happily accepted an invitation from Neil Dixon a few weeks ago to be a guest on Desert Island Geek.

The format for this 30-minute podcast is simple according to the invitation document Neil sent me:

Desert Island geek is a new podcast show all about you. Imagine being marooned on a deserted island, with nothing to wile away the long, hot days but a handful of your most precious and cannot-live-without geek items. Choose carefully, you may be stuck there for some time!

If you’ve ever listened to Desert Island Discs on BBC Radio 4, you’ll get a rough idea of the format.

Yesterday we recorded the episode. As Neil is a near-neighbour, I popped over to his place in Maidenhead and we spent a terrific couple of hours talking and doing the show.

What were the items I chose to take to the island? You’ll have to listen to the episode to find out but let me say that I had fun compiling the list!

This episode will be posted after Easter. I gather there’s one featuring a certain Scotsman that will be up before then.

Desert Island Geek is a great idea. Kudos to Neil for the imagination.
