Podcast? No thanks. 46 minutes? Really, no thanks.
How about transcripts? I can process information by reading a whole
helluva lot faster than I can by listening to it.

Agreed. What about accessibility? You have your CAPTCHA “orange” accessible for the visually impaired, but make no effort to make your stackoverflow.com preview/promo accessible to the hearing impaired. I’m disappointed - I always thought you were better than that.
I hope stackoverflow.com doesn’t use audio too much when it’s finished. Coding is a typed activity. It doesn’t need audio description, and in most cases it doesn’t even need diagrams. Good old fashioned text is the way to go with this project as far as I can see.
(Maybe you just recorded an MP3 because it saves typing, but for a programmer that seems a pretty lame excuse).
