"New" C-Realm Podcast Transcript Availalbe

I'm cranking out the transcripts. This interview with Bill McKibben was recorded in December of 2007, and here it is only August of 2009 and it's already available in transcript form:

C-Realm transcripts
KMO, I just created this LiveJournal account so I could ask about these podcast transcripts. I hope you're not creating these transcripts yourself, or paying someone to have them done. I think there are enough C-Realm listeners like myself who would be happy to help you!

Re: C-Realm transcripts
Hi Carol,

Yes, I have been paying someone I hired on ELance.com to transcribe the interviews, and then I suspect I spend at least as much time correcting and editing the transcripts as she spends preparing them. There is a lot of jargon and many lexical outliers lurking in these conversations, and creating the transcripts takes a lot of time and energy.

If you'd be willing to contribute your skills and efforts to the project, please have a go at the interview with Joe Beagent in episode 149.

I'm hoping to get a book together. I don't expect to make a living selling books, but having a book published could lead to public speaking gigs, and that's something I feel called to do.

Re: C-Realm transcripts
Sure, I'll have a go. Happy to help, especially considering how much work you put into the C-Realm. Since I heard Joe Bageant on the C-Realm, I've subscribed to his blog, and I just listened to a long interview with him on another podcast yesterday!

You could mention the transcription project on the podcast (sorry if you have already and I've missed it). It would be nice to have a team of transcribers and editors, and leave the final check for yourself.
