I’m sorta? Looking forward to this…given most people are visual, can I ask why there isn’t a transcript, even at a cost? I may not listen because it takes longer, I cannot study it and I’m not auditory inclined.

Interesting comment from Debbie. I’m visual too, though I gather we are becoming nore of a minority! I like the IDEA of podcasts, but realistically it’s always too noisy on the bus or I don’t have earphones with me; also I assimilate so much more, more quickly, when reading than listening.
