Being a Podcast Transcriptionist and Lovin’ it
Podcast transcription is my main interest.
Podcasts can be audios or videos of bloggers talking to their audiences or interviews and product reviews. However the bulk of the podcast transcription that I do consists of interview podcasts.
That means that I get to listen to interviews of very cool people before others do.
Also the fact that I’m very much interested in the subjects of discussion really helps. Usually the subjects are niche marketing, building online communities, blogging and site flipping.
Those are subjects that I’m exploring and learning every single day. I read them on blogs and listen to podcasts.
Instead of paying for premium podcasts I get to listen to them and get paid too. How cool is that!
It’s true that people talk much faster and therefore more words to type for a podcast transcriptionist in a recording like podcast because it’s not a dictation.
Podcast audios are meant for listeners, dictations are meant for transcriptionists. So podcast transcription has more words per minute. A 30-min audio podcast could contain as many as 5,000 plus words!
However, in podcasts it’s the people who speak and the content of the podcasts that makes it so interesting and lively and insightful at times.
I hope to apply some of the insights I gain from these podcasts into my transcription business.
So, what are the podcasts you listen to? Do share!
