The podcast world is buzzing again about Podcast Transcriptions, so we thought it was time for us to talk about them. In this episode we’ll discuss how you can get them, what they are, pros of using podcast transcriptions, cons, and our opinion on whether or not it’s worth creating transcriptions for your shows.

In this week’s Better Podcasting Download we discuss how THREE companies were IAB Compliant Certified over the last week, what that means for hobby podcasters, and we theorize on why certain companies are getting certified (and others aren’t).

Finally, we run down feedback including a look down memory lane for us.
