  • Any chance of transcripts from podcasts? I find it takes less time to glance over the conversations than to try and listen to someone talk at me for 30 mins.

    • Hey Katie, Only for solo episodes right now because I write them out before recording. In the future I would love to hire someone or a service to transcribe the interviews, but right now we don’t have a resource for this. Do you have a resource recommendation that could do this? If you find a service like this, I would love to try it out so the transcripts are available.
