We’re adding transcripts to our podcast

It’s always been part of the plan to make our podcast as accessible as possible by including transcripts, for those of you who find written information easier to consume. Last week we began the process of commissioning these, starting with the two most recent episodes. You’ll notice that the transcripts are mostly unedited — we’re still figuring out the best way to correct the small errors that may occur.

If you’d like to see this continue, we need your support. The cost of commissioning a transcript is about a dollar a minute, which means for a typical episode we pay between $30-60. Our podcast doesn’t have sponsors like you might see elsewhere, because we’ve decided to focus on communicating as directly as possible with our listeners and readers. So here’s the pitch: pledge at least $1 each podcast, and if enough of you do this to cover at least half the expense of transcription for the podcast episode, we’ll make sure it continues.

Check out the transcripts on our recent episodes here: Podcast Episode 8: Interview with Heidi Waterhouse and Podcast Episode 7: Interview with Rebecca Fraimow. Thanks for your support, and be sure to let us know what you think.
