I wish more folks who podcast turned episodes into great blog posts.
 
We did this for our "How I Raised It" podcast using Temi for transcription then an editor off of Fiverr, but still required an hour+ of additional editing for each episode. Switched to PodReacher (props to @J_Schiff) and never looked back! :)
 
Here's an example. Podcast: https://soundcloud.com/user-2586856/how-i-raised-it-with-amanda-johnson-and-kj-miller-of-mented-on-6112018 into Blog Post: https://medium.com/swlh/hustle-and-glam-how-menteds-co-founders-raised-4m-in-seed-funding-for-their-inclusive-beauty-9790402f9c29 Neat trick, huh? :)
