  1. I have a hard time carving out time to listen to these so I wish there was a transcript in the post.

    • Hi Tammy,

      Thanks for the feedback. I did an especially poor job with the text part of the post for this particular episode. My apologies for that.

      I did include more detail in the post for episode 009 and will definitely do a better job of fleshing out the content via a real post as I add future episodes. The goal is to transition the podcast episodes to the Shine Springs Farm website, as I get that established. (And return to more regular Ben Franklin Follies blog posts here, rather than just the podcast. Including the podcast here is a temporary content situation, not the direction of The Ben Franklin Follies site).

      If you have a smart phone, you can listen in the car or while exercising via a iTunes, zune or doubleTwist streaming via your phone, even if you don’t own an iPad or other mp3 player. I spend so much time in the car driving too/from work and the farm that I assume everyone else does, too, and that they have time to listen in the car.

      All of that said, I’m not sure a real transcript is possible. It would take way too much time for me to create a complete transcript. If I can find a free and usable voice transcription tool online, I’ll certainly add it.

      I’ll certainly do every thing I can to make the podcast content more accessible to folks who don’t have time to listen. Thanks for the feedback.
