Four of Australia’s finest female technology experts have a launched a new weekly podcast, Queens of the Drone Age covering the key talking points in tech.
Rae Johnston, the science and technology editor at NITV and SBS, Mashable reporter Amanda Yeo, Gizmodo Australia editor Tegan Jones and Good Game Spawn Point presenter Angharad Yeo are promising “funny and informed chat covering everything from Apple’s latest release to why space is terrifying and we should never go there”.
The podcast is released every Monday and launched last week.
The quartet are friends and Johnston said they wanted to offer accessible and conversational behind-the-scenes tech insights from four experts.
“Rad, Amanda, and Tegan are three people who are absolutely at the top of their game when it comes to technology journalism, and I always learn so much whenever we go on hikes together,” she said.
“I feel like everyone could benefit from being able to listen in on those conversations.”
Angharad Yeo said exploring tech with three of her best friends “who also happen to be some of the smartest minds in the area” was the best.
“Tech has always been one of my favourite things to talk about. It encompasses considerate design, cool gadgets, and whacky creativity,” she said.
“It’s humankind’s way of striving for a better life — whether that be eating better, staying connected, or having fun!”
