Transcript: Episode 125 – Interview With the Vampire

Hello! This is an experiment. We love the idea of having podcast transcripts and we know they’re important for accessibility, but the truth is it’s also very expensive and time-consuming to create transcripts, and, well, we all have full-time non-podcast jobs. This transcript was largely done by the Otter app with editing by our editor Becca. We’d like to keep making transcripts of our episodes but won’t be able to do them regularly.

We know this transcript isn’t perfect, but we hope you enjoy it anyway! If you have feedback about this transcript or how we can make transcripts more useful for you, you can leave a comment on this post or let us know on Twitter or Facebook!

You can listen to the audio from this episode here!

Episode 125 – Interview With the Vampire

Interview with The Vampire by Anne Rice

 

We ran out of Twilight books so we had to read about some less-sparkly vampires, ugh! Fortunately, we were #blessed with the company of not only Meredith Goldstein (author of the Boston Globe’s Love Letters column as well as the books Can’t Help Myself and Chemistry Lessons) but also a live audience at Trident Booksellers, for our discussion of Interview With the Vampire by Anne Rice. If you weren’t able to join us in person, now at last you can hear our agonized discussion of a book with a lot of arson and insufficient glam (which could have been rectified by the addition of Cher.)

Transcript (experimental): Here.
