As soon as I heard the true story of the seven keys to the internet, I knew that it would make an amazing series of heists. Did you know that IN REAL LIFE, in order to make sure no one country has too much control over the internet, there are seven people from seven parts of the world with keys to control it? They have to meet with those keys every three months in a steel cage covered in retinal scanners and earthquake sensors to do an elaborate ceremony that keeps the internet working. That is a real thing. And that’s just the BEGINNING of how it all works. This show is about what would happen if someone were to steal those keys. it’s a series of heists, taking place all over the world… ranging from hijacking top secret military satellites, to stealing a dude’s pants. It’s a story about how hacking affects our world… but without a single actual hacker anywhere to be found.
This is the good stuff, so don’t miss out on the most fun you can have learning about the weird way the internet is safeguarded.
