Exclusive Coverage: Faraday interviews drone pilot

Faraday: I'm here today with former drone pilot, Mission Commander and all around aviation geek genius, Brian R. (also known as my human brother, but I digress.)

Today's interview is a sneak peek into the Fabulously Incisive Reporting we'll be doing for April's Be The Change for Animals Blog event this Tuesday, 4/15.

Stay tuned for a riveting (and seriously guys, a very important) post.

But for now, we join Brian, recently returned to us from Kenya. Brian?

Brian: uh, yeah. Hi. This is a little weird, being interviewed by you, y'know.

Faraday: Yeah, yeah. So, cutting to the chase here:
                 Is it true you went to Kenya to visit with my Great Uncle Mortimer?

Great Uncle Mortimer and Aunt Flo. Can you see the resemblance?

Brian: Well, I --
Faraday: And is it true that I inherited my bad teeth from my Aunt Flo?

Seriously. a little brushing would not be amiss, here.
Brian: Uh, I'm not --
Faraday: Uh-oh, don't look now, but Aunt Flo's giving you the stink eye.
                What'd you say to her anyways?

No one glares like Aunt Flo. No one.
Brian: Actually, I didn't --
Faraday: Did they mention me, their wildly successful and famous American nephew, while you were there? I'm sure that was a hot topic of conversation, wasn't it. Right? Right?

Patrician nose? Check. TOTAL FARADAY FAMBLY TRAIT.
Brian: Really, it never --
Faraday: Aaaaand that's all the time we have today folks! Thanks for joining us as we venture into the wilds of Africa for a reunion of epic proportion. EPIC!


Brian: You do realize your post title is totally misleading. We never talked about drones, or the positive ways they're being used in Africa, at all. 

Faraday: *waves paw* Yeah, details, details.

Please join us this Tuesday, when we promise to do just that!

  13. MOL! Aren't you supposed to let whoever you are interviewing talk, at least sometimes? My human had to remind herself that occasionally - it makes her blush to hear so much of her voice on interview recordings when she was a rock journalist!
