I wanted to create a podcast that anyone listening in would immediately feel like this was for them. A smart and informative space that’s also fun and welcoming. No one has to prove themselves here because tech is for everyone.”

Episode 119: The Human Centipede of Games

It’s been a great week for game releases and the Queens got some sneak peaks so they can give you the low down. Tegan fulfilled her destiny by becoming a cult leader. No not in real life. Yet. She’s gotten heavy into Cult of the Lamb and we’re surprised she stopped playing to record the […]

Episode 118: LEGO

This year it’s been 90 years since LEGO changed the world of toys. Nine decades of bringing tiny construction dreams to life and eliciting cries of pain as adults and children alike as they extract rogue bricks from the underside of their feet. Studies have shown that construction toys are fantastic for the growing minds […]

Episode 117: Rubbing Mouse Feet Vigorously

We’re not sure if you noticed, but we love a good gadget chat here at Queens of the Drone Age. So here’s another one! In this episode Rad checks out the WHOOP 4.0 – the fitness band, not the loud excited sound. And for those of you who love gaming and/or productivity, Amanda and Rad […]

Episode 116: Deep Dive: Avatars

With more and more of our lives being lived online, the way we represent ourselves in digital spaces is becoming more complex. While many of us have been using avatars and connecting with online representation for years, the looming metaverses of the future raises an array of important questions. Is it okay to wander around […]

Episode 115: ‘Love Actually’ Vibes

In this catch up, Rad tells the Queens about her recent trip to Coonabarabran, NSW, to check out the Huntsman Telescope – the first (and only!) of its kind in the southern hemisphere (which you could technically built yourself for a cool $30k). She also got to take a Canon R7 mirrorless camera with her, […]

Episode 112: Unethical apps

Apps are great, except for when they’re not. And some are just downright dodgy. So in this ep the Queens put some unethical apps under the microscope – such as Noom – as well as some of the practices that have allowed them to stay live and make money on the App Store and Google […]

Episode 111: Fracking Simulator

The Queens are bestowing quite the mixed bag on y’all this week. Rad reviews the very fancy SteelSeries Arctis Nova Pro Wireless headset, which comes with not one but two swappable batteries. And on the gaming front, Rae checks out wholesome farm and witchy sim Wylde Flowers. Meanwhile, Tegan takes issue with BMW announcing a […]

Episode 110: Data privacy and surveillance

In the wake of the Roe vs Wade being overturned there has been renewed discussion around data security and privacy. So the Queens talk some of the things you can do to keep your phone and computer data more secure – from VPNs and end-to-end encryption to signal blocking Faraday bags for your device. They […]

Episode 109: One Worm For One TV

In this episode Rad and Tegan are left to their own devices, quite literally. Tegan breathes heavily over the brand new flagship Sony WH-1000XM5 headphones while Rad takes a look at the much smaller Sony LinkBuds S – the ones without the hole in them. Rad also adds to her Vibe Kingdom with the Philips […]

Episode 106: The Queens get haunted

It’s time to get haunted, folks. In this episode the Queens go on a tour of one of Australia’s most haunted locations – the Q Station at Manly.
