The commenting (including clarifications) and the audio switching was all my doing, I think. I don’t think any of the other readers did this. I tried to denote these episodes separately. For the Toby Ord episode I had a lot to say and some knowledge in this area and I wanted to get my thoughts out there. So it was a “different sort of thing”.
For some other readings I commented less, or almost not at all.
The left/right thing was meant to distinguish between the original text and the comments. Perhaps there is some better way of doing this?
I can definitely see the argument for “reading without commenting” in many cases, or for putting these separate.
For me it was more like “I want to read and comment on these and I thought that while doing so it would be worth posting them”.
Anyways the main point is that ea forum podcast could probably handle doing these, at least some of them and we wouldn’t add commentary… at least if the funding were there I think we could get these done.
