Originally I made a digital SSC podcast (feed) so that I could listen through the back catalog of posts (the human reader version didn’t start until ~2017). I ended up getting used to the robot narrator, so I just kept it running on ACX. One small upside is that the digital versions get created within minutes of new posts.
That makes sense. Still, I’m wondering if it might not be better to just continue the digital versions and put a link to the human reader ones, to clutter things up a little bit less. Or you might keep it up but put a link to the human reader version for people who might not know about it. It is certainly possible that some people actually prefer hearing a machine than a (particular) human. (Although his production value is very high, higher than mine was).
By the way, as you probably know there’s a reason why he doesn’t record these until the day after the blogs come out: they are often adjusted/adapted and he wants to give some space for that to happen. On the other hand you could argue that people will just choose the version they prefer and we can trust the consumer here
