Seattle police are hoping to dispel concerns about privacy and encourage community support for their newly acquired drones by inviting the public to a Q&A at Garfield Community Center tonight. We hear more about the SPD's drones, what they would be used for and how their use would be monitored.

Also this hour, we revisit the panic that took hold on October 30, 1938, when “The Mercury Theater on the Air” sent people fleeing from their homes during their radio adaptation of “The War of the Worlds”; we hear how your last name can affect your social mobility for generations; and Sara Dickerman joins us with a lunch recommendation.
