Few podcasts are as enthralling and exciting as those delving into the gritty world of true crime. It’s fascinating, isn’t it? The thought of spicing up your daily commute with the gruesome escapades of a serial killer. But for those a little more captivated by the moral and technological conundrums we’re facing today and tomorrow – I’m talking about the stuff straight out of Minority Report – a cybercrime podcast might be the niche for you.
Hosted by seasoned investigative journalist Claire Aird and futurist Mark Pesce, Aussie cybercrime podcast Criminal Domain is on a mission to peel back the layers behind the crime/technology nexus. The new podcast debuts this week with the story of Tayla Damir, winner of 2018’s Love Island Australia, who was stranded in Lebanon after someone stole her identity, drained her bank accounts, and took over her digital life.
The series unravels the dangers of having our lives constantly linked to our smartphones, the psychology of criminal manipulation, and even discovers how one stalker had remote control of their victim’s car.
Criminal Domain is presented by NortonLifeLock, and marks the launch of ‘Dark Web Monitoring’ – a new cybersecurity technology of which Australia is one of the first countries in the world to have access to.
