Podcast transcript

Transcribing the podcast is a time consuming operation. Usually it is outsourced to a company that often takes more than a week to deliver the transcription. This delays the publication of the podcast a lot, so some topics become outdated.

Then it requires at least twice the duration of the recording to listen and fix transcription mistakes.

Therefore, for now the podcast transcription is suspended until we find a less time consuming solution.

Still if you miss the transcription of this podcast, we would still like to know how do you feel by posting a comment here.
