[First: I did an extensive forum search, no results for exactly this Q. Apologies if it’s under my nose, please provide link.]
I strongly think there are a lot of TR users / cyclists on this forum that are super interested to learn the info in the podcasts, but fall into one or both of the following:
1 - Absolutely no time to listen to a 1+ hr podcast. “Do it on your commute!” - Many of us don’t have 1+ hr commutes. I happily keep myself very busy, and the precious downtime I have I want to watch a movie or go for a hike w my partner, not listen to a podcast.
2 - Strongly dislike podcasts, period, zero interest to listen. I [we?] totally get the draw! : ) No judgement if it’s your thing! It’s relaxing, entertaining, it’s fun, you sorta “get to know the people”, in a way, it’s personal, etc. Happy for you to be enjoying!! : ) And we have absolutely zero interest in joining you! Yes, we have tried them. Yes, many. Dozens. Zero interest.
I’m not going to listen to a person or group of people talk for an hour or more to give me info that can honestly be distilled into four bullet points with eight relevant sub-points that I can read & digest in 1.6 minutes. Or a synopsis I can read in 5 - 10…
We’d really like to dig into the info, and participate in discussion, but really, there’s zero chance we will be “convinced” to do it that way. Door’s closed.
There doesn’t currently seem to be any synopses available for the podcast. The more concise the better, bullet points even better. I mean, possibly with links to studies, but those are already provided in the podcast forum posts, so really, just a library of synopses to read through.
Is there any way we could get these done? I mean “video to text software” / AI must be able to automatically, right?
Any others who’d read a ton of them, if a library DID exist? Maybe if a ton of interest pooled up, there’d be motivation to create them?
I hope this fosters positive discussion. This isn’t meant to “poop on the podcast”, or podcasts in general.
It’s meant to open discussion on how other users can access that info, and gauge interest levels.
