British podcaster Paul Boag had me on his show for a nice little interview the other day. We discussed the user interface of Digg, enabling people to participate in a community site, developing for the iPhone, and lots of other interesting bits of interface design. He's very good at putting his subjects at ease, so it was a fun interview to participate in.
Thankfully, Paul includes full transcripts of his shows on his site. Aside from the obvious advantages for accessibility and searchability, it has the added benefit that I could read the entire thing this morning in a cafe without headphones. Very nice. I wish more podcasters had the patience to do so. Even with typing errors and some hilarious misinterpretations (Ben Goodger came out as Van Gudgers!!) it's extremely useful. I'd be curious to know if he uses an automated system.
The one problem with the transcripts is that you can count the times I say "you know". Erg, what a terrible oral crutch. I'll have to work on that.
