A Challenge:

It has come to my attention that some poor souls out there are unable to listen to Tim's podcasts. Either their systems are too old, or they just don't have the right equipment or software or whatever. Sooooo...

Dear Readers, Is there anyone out there who would like to take on the challenge of transcribing the podcast? Paying special attention to spelling and grammar of course - which may be difficult : ) Are you an English Major? An editor? This could be the job for you!

I'm not thinking of going back retroactively and doing this for previous podcasts - just starting with the next one. And I don't expect a committment beyond this one podcast. What do you say? I know it will be long. And a big job. Who is up for the challenge?

I'll do it! I have time on my hands, am a writer/editor/academic and am a Tim Gunn addict. I'll email it to you right after the show as I'll be up tomorrow watching tennis anyway.

I'll do it. I'm an english major, and I'm always looking for a distraction to take my mind off my upcoming thesis!!

Thank you! I've been wondering what I'm missing!

Well, that's a very nice offer. I would recommend updating your equipment so you can listen to it yourself. I think hearing him discuss it really adds to that whole thing.

You know you can listen to it on your computer, right? You don't have to have and MP3 player.

Okay, orbots- you responded first, so you tackle it this week - Bettie, you're on for next week. Thank you both!

I haven't listened to any of them! I thought you needed and IPod...hence it being a pod cast! I'm being a computer moron I guess...

I'll have to check later if I can even listen to them on my computer...if not, then I want one of those transcripts!

aj, if you have sound on your computer, you should be able to listen to them. That's how I listen to them every week. I'm not sure if you need a particular media player or not, but if you do it will tell you.

i had an unexpected amount of downtime at work today, but also needed to look busy, so i transcribed tim's podcast for the "on thin ice" episode. i'll hopefully email it to you as soon as i finish this comment. i say "hopefully" because my internet access has been really wonky today. and yes, i did bother to capitalize things in the transcript.
