"I love reading but also enjoy podcasts (I listen to shows daily) as an alternative way to consume content. But I don’t believe they are interchangeable. It’s rare that a podcast transcript makes for a good article and vice versa. They are different mediums and the delivery is unique. But that’s a good thing. Podcasts feel more informal. Mistakes in a show are more easily forgiven than in other mediums and can even add to the “realism”. Digressions are welcome."
