feature-request status-completed We've started a Transcription Club for people who want to help transcribe episodes. Not listened to it yet, so burn me if that was mentioned during it (and/or I missed something), but are you planning on releasing a transcript as well? I can see it being useful for a couple situations: deaf/hard-of-hearing people who can'...

I think a transcript should be overseen by a human before releasing it. I find this hard to read and I am hard of hearing so I can't enjoy the original audio. Is there an ETA for when a human will help out with it?

Thanks for the interesting discussion. You discussed how (or whether) to factor answers into the evaluation of a question as good/neutral/bad and the hazards of edge cases there. Perhaps what you're seeing is a difference between good and interesting. We've all seen questions that the community considers poor (lots of downvotes) but that nonetheless have ...

At 16:50 in the audio we hear: John: ... Maybe in future episodes we could interview moderators? Abby: Ooh! Juan: That's a great idea! Abby: This is a call for you know requests for proposals if you'd like to be interviewed on this podcast you can call 1-800 ... (All laugh) Abby: ... We do not have a phone number set up this ...

Since a bunch of people have indicated their desire for a transcript, I'm going to assume many readers are not interested in listening to the audio-only podcast. That's probably a good instinct. As I said in a comment: It's a traditional first episode. So you can safely ignore it until we get to episode 7 and you find the show interesting. Assuming ...

Honing in on your idea that you could interview moderators, why not interview one or two of our new MSE moderators? I'd like to see a deep dive into how moderating this meta site differs mechanically and philosophically from moderating a normal site. Perhaps also more about the impetus to create meta.SE moderator positions after a long time.

So why aren't beta sites being recognized as healthy communities? Writing.SE clamours for graduation, as well as other beta sites like BoardGames.SE that have been in existence for over 9 years! There is no question that these are healthy communities (it certainly meets Jon Ericson's definition presented at the start of the podcast), and yet their requests ...

I think interviewing moderators or significant contributors to StackOverflow might be an interesting idea. So as thanks, I wanted to share an optional nice closing question you all might like to someday use: Original: "What was the one question you expected us to ask, but we didn't? And what is the answer?" Q/A variation: "What was the one question you ...

I haven't listened through the entire podcast yet, and only skimmed the transcript, so this might have been answered already. I know I already created several other questions and answers on this topic in various meta sites across the network, but I'm going to keep bringing this up when it's relevant regardless of how unpopular this opinion is. You're ...
