What does podcast transcription mean?
What are podcasts?
Before we get into podcast transcription, let’s first address what podcasts are. I’m sure everyone by now already knows what podcasts are. For those who don’t, no, they’re not a space ship or some kind of doughnut. Wikipedia says a podcast is a form of digital media that consists of an episodic series of audio, video, digital radio, PDF, or ePub files subscribed to and downloaded through web syndication or streamed online to a computer or mobile device. The word is a portmanteau of “(i)Pod” and “broadcast.” The Merriam Webster Tenth International Collegiate defines “podcast” as: a program (as of music or talk) made available in digital format for automatic download over the Internet.
Okay, whatever. It basically means a radio show you can download, alright? Below is the worldwide accepted official icon of podcasts. I don’t know why, maybe it’s because it’s purple, I guess:
Podcasts are different from your regular radio or TV talk shows, because you can download them on your device and listen to them as many times as you’d like. Podcasts are fun, and can be on a number of topics from financial podcasts to IT development, web design and development, digital photography, weight loss, politics, music, movies, religion, creativity, lovemaking (yes, lovemaking!), life, beauty, business, philosophy, aliens, batman, superman, batman versus superman and many, many more. How can podcasters get more subscribers? They need to do a rain dance!
Podcast Transcription or Rain Dance? You decide.
No, first they need to be original, more original than this post, and produce entertaining podcasts. And second, get their podcasts transcribed (aha!) and put them on their website or blog. This makes their podcasts not only easily searchable, but tells Google, Bing, Yahoo! and other search engines that they have new, fresh content on their website daily. What this does is result in a much higher ranking on Google and the rest. Podcast transcription also immensely helps hearing disabled people.
