This is the place to organize who is working on what. and to search for what has already being worked on. Offer help or take on a new challenge.

As Hootie said, 707 interview.

Should we have a post for each episode? Or 50 episodes? Keep the thread length manageable?

Don't know about a topic thread for each episode being worked... If we get enough traffic and helpers we will need to do it. but right now we are a small army of ant  ::)


just posted a small chunk of ep 726!   :D

Episode 6
"This is the first scenario I've seen where I question the survivability of mankind." -- self-made billionaire Richard Rainwater in his business analysis of Peak Oil, "The Rainwater Prophecy," Fortune magazine, Dec 26, 2005

"This is an emergency far worse than World War I and World War II put together." -- CEO of Virgin Airlines, Sir Richard Branson on Peak Oil in CNN's investigative report "We Were Warned: Out of Gas" June 2007/May 2008 03:05

"We've got provisions and lots of beer. The key word is survival on the new frontier." --Steely Dan 1983

"... it doesn’t really matter who is removing your civil liberties, whether it is being done by a democratic government, a kleptocracy, a dictatorship or even the green police. When your civil rights are gone, they’re gone, and you really are in trouble, no matter how good the cause." --UK journalist Anthony Harrington, "Peak Oil and Collapse Scenarios," QFinance, September, 2011

Our parents used to say, "Don't worry, the government will take care of it."
And now our kids say, "Don't worry, the government will take care of us."

I thought I had posted my rough transcription so far a few days ago but apparently the thread isn't around anymore (started for episode 1).  Did it get moved somewhere, or did it fail to post maybe?

I'll be starting number 736 next. After I listened to the last Dr. Bones/Nurse Amy interview I listened to I thought That was just plain fun to listen to, so I may do all the Bones/Amy episodes. Anyone know if there's any before 736? A search brings up that one first, but Jack said "I wanted to have them back" so dunno if I missed an earlier one.

I'm actually working on some software based around the podcast... I can't give away too many details, but I'm actually looking to integrate some sort of audio content indexing, but I'm not entirely sure I'm going to be able to get something going successfully...  :(

I definitely would like to be able to do much stronger and better searches / indexes of podcasts by topic.

As a computer engineer love to hear your idea. NDA, or whatever. One of the reasons I started transcribing, was to make it easier to search the audio. Keep at it.

How odd, I just finished my computer engineering degree. I wonder if there's something about that kind of mind that makes us like transcribing.. (My boyfriend said yes, although the wording was more along the lines of "something wrong with that kind of mind", ha.)

What I want to know is...

who's got Episode 1000?

Ahahahaha. I actually considered it. Maybe we should divide it into hour or half-hour sessions, that'd make it less overwhelming.

Sorry for such a delayed reply. Holy crap got through doing alot in the last few days. Had a wedding, moved all my stuff from Virginia to Louisiana, so I've been pretty much on the road for 2 days hah.

I have some contacts through my company that I was going to ping about it because they do audio content indexing for sure. I'm not sure what all they're using, and I'm sure some of it isn't going to be free. However they do have alot of contacts through universities and I think alot of the technology that we use at my job comes from universities. So who knows.

There is no questions asked once I finally get back to working on my application I'll be contacting you and anybody else to see if I can't build in the transcriptions into the "Survival Podcast Database" that I have been putting together.

 I have already selected my text searcher and boy can I not wait to unleash it. I plan on using the Whoosh Python library. Right now it'll just be able to do powerful searches across the text, description and perhaps even the URLs. Also for us power users I'll have the ability to do regular expression searching as well. I actually sent an email to jack asking if he could start including just some basic keywords with the podcasts that really hit the main points of the audio content in an easy and trustable parsing way. I'm thinking about calling up as an extra incentive.... I probably wasn't clear enough with my intentions to improve searching capabilities. As of right now the current searching technique is pretty awful.

I'd like to be able to go "steve harris" and REALLY get steve harris hits, ordered by match hits, perhaps even weighted depending on location (title vs html content).

Nearly all of my application is complete the only thing really left at this point is doing GUI stuff. I need to look around the forums for a good place to announce my project.... I'll probably wait till i actually sit down for a weekend and crank out more code that way I feel like i'm not leaving people hanging.  :)

If anyone is looking for there next episode to transcribe....
I think Ep 940 would be a great one start next. Steven Harris mentions it a lot on his site. and with the battery episode air soon, i think people might get some use out of a text version as Ep 940 talks about using a cars batter as an inverter.

Let me know if anyone wants to help. I am curious on how we could do a group transcribe, on a single ep... maybe google docs?


past the 2/3 mark in ep 1005.... in fact i got the siri part done, just need to correct it and fix the grammer :)

Sure.  A few of us are working on Ep 1040 (Steven Harris) see this thread. But really you can do any ep that inspires you.
