Drones are watching us all now.
And they’re getting better.
The technology has advanced so quickly that they are already being used to track and target people with no prior warning.
They’re used to tracking the movements of the birds they are trained to track, to track people at the grocery store, to monitor weather and to monitor the health of their neighbors.
And now they’re being used for something even more nefarious: The drone show.
The drones are coming to our lives.
There’s an app for that, too.
We’re in the process of writing an app that takes all of the things we love about watching TV, and turns them into something new.
We are not just going to put them in a bag and drop them somewhere.
It’s not about how they work.
It is about how we use them.
We love them for their beauty and their versatility.
But when we look at their capabilities, we see an industry of drones.
We have to think beyond the simple beauty and functionality of drones to the deeper intelligence they bring to the equation.
This is where technology comes in.
The Drone Show is a podcast that tells the story of what it’s like to be a drone observer, from the moment we pick up our camera to the moment the drones drop from the sky.
We also explore some of the technologies behind them.
Our host is Sarah B. Kallman, an award-winning journalist and filmmaker.
She’s worked for Wired, NPR, the New York Times, TIME, The Wall Street Journal and The Atlantic.
She is the co-founder and CEO of The Drone Zone, a new startup based in the UK.
We invited Sarah and a small team of producers to tell the story in a way that you’re not going to believe: through a podcast.
To do that, we wanted to bring together some of our favorite voices in the technology industry, including Sarah’s longtime friend and colleague, Joe Dolan, a co-creator of The Verge’s technology podcast, The Future of the Podcast.
We were inspired by the technology world we know, and how we all want to be able to share what we know.
We wanted to create an immersive experience that will keep listeners engaged.
It also has to be entertaining.
There are so many elements to what we are covering.
We’ve got the technology behind drones, the stories they tell, and the personalities of people who are trying to use drones to help solve problems.
And we have an audience to serve.
We want to give the people who love technology, like us, something to love.
This podcast will be a conversation about technology and what we want to hear, with all of you.
We hope you’ll join us for the show.
This week’s episode is about drones.
How do they work?
How are they used?
What are the challenges that drones face?
