  1. Would be nice to have transcript of show so we can read relevant parts instead of needing to listen to the dreary thing…..

    1. Hey Alex, I don't remember you paying us to produce the show for you. Send me 50 USD and I'll get a transcription for you, or you can roll your own at https://www.rev.com/

      Cheers
