🤘 We now have a podcast (kind of)
I've been teasing that for a few days, but let's say we are officially experimenting with a podcast version of our articles. To be clear, Stéphanie and I have been struggling with this idea for months as we don't have the material time to record things. We also have a catalog of precisely 1,024 articles (which is a happy number for the geeks reading this 🤗).
The idea we come up with is to select some of the evergreen articles from months or years ago and record them with a text-to-speech tool. Even though Apple is now doing remarkable things with AI and audiobooks, the state of the market for text-to-speech solutions is objectively not that good. This is uncanny valley central! That being said, after many tryouts, we ended up finding Speechify decent enough to use it. It's not perfect, mind you, but it's getting in a good spot.
The plan is to release a weekly episode every Tuesday to complement the Thursday newsletter edition. Each episode should be 1-3 min long. Think of them as inspirational audio candy!
