Ordinary Drones (Peter Robinson)

Ordinary Drones (Peter Robinson)

Not What You Think with Zacha Rosen

Share:
There are exciting drones and there are definitely scary drones. But drones have quieter things going on as well. They’re already at work doing ordinary stuff: working in agriculture, in infrastructure, filming the news. Peter Robinson is a journalist at the ABC, and has been working on pioneering some of those moves for the organisation. Links from this episode: CASA’s Can I Fly There? app. Four Corners’ water theft story, with its drone-shot footage. The drone battery fire on board a plane at Melbourne airport. New York Mag writer Benjamin Wallace Wells described a drone as something that can move you “back and forth between the intimate and the vast.” Wanna buy a drone now? The Wirecutter has a guide to buying a cheapish one. Songs from This Episode: They Do They Don’t — Jack Johnson Homesick — Pavrov Stellar La Kebradita — Mexican Institute of Sound S.T.A.Y. — Hans Zimmer (Interstellar soundtrack) A.C — ILJUS WIFMO Lovely Raquel — Thomas Newman (Shawshank Redemption soundtrack) See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
