We're excited to maintain the tradition of delivering high-quality podcast transcripts and are grateful for their trust in handing over this initiative to us.
Will you be offering a print edition?
No, The Podcast Reader by Fanfare will be digital-only, offering downloadable PDFs for offline reading and printing. Additionally, we'll provide interactive transcripts enabling readers to listen along with the podcast. Check out an example here: How can AI help with climate change? Future features might include personalized episode summaries and chatbot-assisted interactions with the transcript.
What topics will you cover?
We will continue to focus on the arts, science, entrepreneurship and public policy. Unlike a print magazine we're not constrained by physical space, so we will explore adding more topics in the future.
