“Are you really going to read everything in the askbox? Wow you are brave, but thank u for that :) Well I have a suggestion, I’m from Venezuela and listening the podcasts isn’t easy to me, please make a written post about what you say so international fans have it easier to understand you! ”
This tears at my fan heart, because what’s being asked for here is a transcription of the episode and at this time, that’s not something we’re able to provide. We’d love to, but we try to get the podcast out the same day the episode airs so all the fans watching and transcription…well, it’s a pain.
There are services that would do this for us as we work answering your questions and running the podcast proper, but that would require money, which we don’t have.
Right now, we’re getting quoted at about $1 to $1.50 (US) per audio minute for the kind of turnaround that’s being asked for above and that’s a good $40/episode average on top of the hosting we’re already covering because we’re fans and the man hours…ooof.
I’m not saying this is completely out of the realm of possibility, and I encourage our international fans to stick with it, but for right now, we’re gunning to be current during the approx 11 weeks of Korra’s broadcast, and that means not a lot of time for transcriptions.
UGH. But I feel so bad about it. Thank you so much for listening!
