Listening to a podcast is like having someone read a story to me.. agonizingly slow. There is no way to skip ahead to the sections or parts which might be most relevant or interesting because, of course, they are not visible. Thus, I rarely ever download them unless I'm planning to be a captive audience on an airplane or something.Fast and light isn't just for backpacking; it is actively filtering information in real-time; podcasts just can't do that.Please provide the text for each podcast.Thanks.
Hey Brett - coming soon... we'll have podcast transcripts for all past podcasts (including the OR interviews) and will publish transcripts with or shortly following future podcasts.Ben
That would really help, Thanks Benjamin.
This is some nice information. Thanks guys.
podcasts may be chic and nice to listen to but are completely useless for any actual pratical purposes since you either would have to rewind and rewind the podcast to get the desired info or jot down notes by hand, neither of which is very user friendly.
I thought they had brought up possibly also having the text version of the podcast like on other podcasting sites.
I don't know about everyone else, but I miss reading the articles that used to be here all the time. Podcasts are nice, but articles with graphs, photos, and stuff like that beats them hands down every time :(
duplicate- disregard please.
