      Elizabeth Grosvenor

      Podcast transcribing

      Elizabeth transcribes the podcasts. Mostly so she can get a sneak-peak at the content.
      But she finds it much easier to get motivated when there's a deadline looming than a fortnight before it's strictly necessary (has a preference for perceiving, if you're fluent in Myers Briggs), so quite often her 'sneak-peak' is only the Thursday night before the podcast lands on a Friday!
