    I picked this up yesterday from your tweet. Thank you for some fantastic reading material. I also spent the evening wondering what a bunch of 15 year old immortal female vampires would be like. I might even have to put finger to keyboard later.

    What a lovely review! Thanks so much. We would love to make GS more accessible, but the labor it would take to produce transcripts is way outside the realms of possibility for the three of us – there are weeks when just gathering for the two hours to talk at each other stretches our resources badly.

    If anyone (or any large team of people) was committed enough to want to undertake such a task, we’d be delighted, but the very thought of it is overwhelming. Not sure we yet have a fanbase quite devoted enough…

    Thanks Lauredhel for the suggestion of repeating the novel & author title after discussing it – that’s not something I’d thought of, but I think we can try to do that. We put great stock in the show notes but of course the entire thing isn’t always available on people’s iPods. Very useful feedback!

    thanks for the link because i did not know about it!

    on the transcription front: i used to work in court reporting and audio transcription. for transcripts that were time-sensitive, we used to break down the 90 minute master tapes into 10 minute chunks for typing.

    so for a 120 minute show, 10-12 volunteer transcribers would only need to spend about 30 minutes a week on transcription.
