I want to listen to some podcasts but my english is not that good so can you rec me podcasts with transcripts

i’m actually just the right person to go to for this because i have a really hard time paying attention to podcasts.  my mind tends to wander without a firm focus point and i miss entire chunks of episodes so it really helps to have a page up so i can follow along with my eyes.  of the ones i listen to, these are the ones that i know have at least some transcripts:

  • the bright sessions - a lot of season two’s are missing, but one and three are fully available
  • the penumbra podcast - they are currently attempting to set up a fan-run transcription tumblr but, in the meantime and if you can afford it, they do have season two’s transcripts available if you’re a patreon supporter
  • welcome to night vale - the night vale presents shows are your best friends because they have very dedicated fanbases that get the transcripts up crazy fast (and joseph and jeffrey are super cool about them existing), so there’s also…
  • alice isn’t dead
  • within the wires
  • the orbiting human circus (of the air)
  • tanis - this one is not current, cuts out partway through season two, but they do have transcripts available if you’re a patreon supporter (though they are super slow to get them out, just fyi)
  • the black tapes
  • ars paradoxica
  • limetown - unfortunately only the first four (of six) episodes are transcribed

hope this helps!  ❤

So Today I Watched… Wonder Woman // Warner Bros (2017)

And so it is. The day has finally come. Before making the mistake of saying “The first ever Woman led Super-hero film” let’s remind ourselves for a minute that before this release we had over the past 25 years Supergirl, Tank Girl, Barb Wire, Catwoman and Elektra. No, Wonder Woman is not the first effort by a studio to have a leading superhero female character. BUT it’s the first one they finally get right. This movie it’s a letter of love to the character, one that Gal Gadot carries on with tenderness, strength, innocence and purity. I swear to God.  The best part of this film is this woman’s acting. She embodies all the traits of Diana of Temyscira, Daughter of Hippolyta. A child born from clay, and given life by the grace of Zeus to make the world a safer place.  She doesn’t know about her destiny and she’s refused to be told so by her mother who cares for her more than she should. Diana’s stubbornness and eagerness to learn make her the Amazon’s fiercest warrior until one day she meets Steve Trevor, a British spy on a mission to uncover a ploy by the Germans in WWI to strike the allies with toxic gas.

Diana’s first knowledge of the world of men by the words of Steve wakes her  warrior spirit but despise being a very wise woman in the ways of the Amazon she knows nothing of the world of man. Once she’s out of Temyscira she has to face the nuisances of the world in London on the year of 1918. From here on it’s an amazing experience to see this warrior woman who sees the world on terms of right and wrong, learn about compromise, patience, love, hypocrisy, the measure of principles, the way the world works and how this affect in the outcome of the conflict she faces. Every relationship Diana builds in the film reveals a new facet of the character; she truly is an ambassador for humanity, caring for everyone. As every origin story, this movie has “The hero’s realization” scene (the moment when the hero knows he has to step up and make a stand to prove his/her worth) and while we have seen this played out a thousand times over in a lot of super hero films over the past 12 years Diana’s realization is pure gold and a one the best moments to watch in the film despise being blown over in the trailers already. Diana is not an infallible hero she’s learning as she goes and as such she makes mistakes. Some of them cost her dearly. Some of them haunt her to this day and that’s why she put on the mantle again in Batman V Superman.

The movie did not receive the hype BvS had with a 3 years in the making process and that’s a good thing. This is a very solid film. One of the best origin stories ever told. Patty Jenkins outdid herself with this movie. The aesthetics are great and they suit the period the film is being set in. The music while not the most memorable makes good companionship to the drama unfolding over the 2 hours of story. Every actor is efficient on their contributions. You’ll get humor. You’ll get sadness. You’ll get moments of reflection. You’ll get empowerment. You’ll get action. But above all and everything else… We, the fans, finally have a Wonder Woman feature film and it’s an awesome one. If you are one of the few who haven’t watched it yet go and buy a ticket. You are in for a ride.

My Faith in the DC Cinematic Universe has been restored to a 100%.
