Transcripts (slowly) Coming

This summer, one of my goals is to catch up on the transcripts of our episodes. This means there may be sporadic posts that look like repeats. So, if you rely on email notifications for blog posts, just be aware that there could be some extra traffic over the next few months.

Of course, this will all be worth it when our episodes are more accessible and reference-able! Plus, it is a fun excuse for me to listen to our older episodes.

Speaking of which: I am not doing these exactly in order. I’m starting with our X episodes because, although the first two volumes are a little more free-form, once we hit Covid we started having really detailed scripts because we were no longer recording in the same room, staring each down across a shared microphone. This means the episodes from X onward should go much faster than the earlier episodes.

This does not mean I will not be transcripting the first 18 episodes, but those probably will not happen until I’m mostly caught up with the others. I’m hoping to learn some tricks on the easier episodes, so those early episodes won’t take quite as long. I think it’s ultimately better to have any episodes transcribed, than to be forever paralyzed and overwhelmed by those early episodes. Rest assured, we will get to them!

As always, thanks for hanging in there as we figure things out! This is very much a learning process, and while I did some research into transcription, I mainly had to just start to get past that paralysis mentioned above. Any advice or feedback would be greatly appreciated; I want these transcripts to be as entertaining and helpful as possible!

Bonus Episode: Sailor Moon R – The Movie

To celebrate Pride Month, Lucy and Robin take a look at a movie that really influenced both of them—the Sailor Moon R movie.

This was recorded for our Patreon supporters, but since it’s Pride, we wanted to share the love with all our listeners. We’ll be back to the Rayearth anime with our next episode!
