@Rob_T_Firefly A youtube channel with "Podcast" in the title is also not a podcast sneaky sneaky.

@Capheind @Rob_T_Firefly maybe not, but being able to see the people talking and having subtitles is pretty much the only way I can pay any attention to a "podcast"

@wolfie @Rob_T_Firefly ok, but i didn't say posting to YouTube made an existing podcast not a podcast, just that a YouTube channel on its own isnt one.


@Capheind @Rob_T_Firefly ok fair, I just wouldn't know if any of the ones I've watched are true podcasts as I'd have no reason to look them up off youtube so it wouldn't really matter

@wolfie @Rob_T_Firefly Out of curiosety do podcast transcripts have any value for you?

@Capheind @Rob_T_Firefly it's not something I've looked into, but wouldn't that just be like reading a blog post?

@wolfie @Rob_T_Firefly Yup it would be, Im just curiouse if transcripts or captioned video made the content itself more accessible to you. Obviously neither one is itself a podcast, unless the video is coming as a podcast (rss).

@Capheind @Rob_T_Firefly maybe if the topic/person on the podcast was something/someone I was super interested in I might bother to look up a transcript but honestly as soon as something declares itself a podcast I've already zoned out

@wolfie @Capheind @Rob_T_Firefly Yeah, but there's not really need for it to be a podcast to have value. The beauty of podcasts, to me at least, is that I don't need a specific app to play them; it's not contingent on a service like youtube. I absolutely agree that the internet has a big problem in terms of paying hosts and creators though. It may be free at point of consumption, but servers cost money.
