As Dr. Fleming has noted to you already, there have been some technological mishaps that prevented episode recording while he was in Italy.  We are back to recording this week and will get caught up, but we also wanted you to know about a benefit that is available to Charter Members for free and a la carte to those of other membership levels: transcripts.

If you look at the drop down menu for podcasts on the main page you will see "Transcripts."  Click there to find some selected transcripts to various episodes.  Charter Members receive one new transcript per month as part of their membership and non Charters can purchase individual transcripts for $5.00 each.

These are not simply literal transcriptions of the podcasts, but are cleaned up and edited for ease of reading and sometimes annotated with links and footnotes for references made in the episode.  While the medium of podcasting is great, we know that verba volant, scripta manent, and so a transcript might be a great way to engage with a friend who might not listen to a podcast you send his way.
