Here are some things for the beginning of your March. This being the only March you will ever experience in 20171.
I’ve started using this relatively new bit of transcripting software called Trint. It would never have occurred to me to think about transcripting software until E.G. and me started Storyological. And then someone we love told us that they have trouble with listening to recorded voices. And then I thought. Oh. Right. Of course. Lot’s of people have trouble listening to things. So, I googled. I found these people. You upload audio. It creates a transcript more or less accurate with some understandable misses of words not in the dictionary such as, you know, Storyological. The cool thing is that it’s easy to listen to the audio and correct the transcript as you go. The audio and text are in sync. And you can play the audio in slo-motion if that helps.
Pizza. Existential angst. Friendship. That’s good listening, Trint.
Here’s a link to the latest Storyological transcript for Storyological 2×01 – The Importance of Celine Dion in which we discussed stories from Amal El-Mohtar and Su-Yee Lin.
This amazing bit of journalism in the New Yorker profiling unaccompanied child refugees by Lauren Collins.
Tomorrow, I will be seeing Julia Jacklin in concert. Here is a video for her song, Don’t Let the Kids Win.
President Trump spoke to a joint session of Congress last night, and, speaking of transcripts, here’s an amazing annotated version of the President’s speech from NPR.
Oh, I don’t know. But it’s always best to have five things. Otherwise things might get out of control. Maybe I should change the name of this blog to something thing related. Maybe not. Too many puns. I hope you have enjoyed this fifth thing, readers.
