    I have enjoyed your column for many years but with the radio pod casts I just can not take the time from my busy schedule. Reading for me is ten times faster than listening for me and I absorb more that way. Can you publish written transcripts of the shows?

      First, we are looking into the cost of a transcryption service, but right now our budget is limited. RealClear Radio Hour is donor supporte, through the Competitive Enteprise Institute, and until we get more traction on the donor front our resources are limited.

      Second, I am in the process of rebalancing my time commitments as I prepare to exit the venture capital industry entirely and devote myself to the liberty movement. There are three legs to that stool. The first is RealClear Radio Hour. The second is a campus speaking tour which is just getting underway, thanks to the Young Americans for Liberty who are organizing and hosting my appearances. And the third will be my opinion columns. The plan on that front is to move from a weekly column that appears in a single publication to occasional columns, penned as the muse strikes, placed in mutiple publications as appropriate. My hope is that all this will come together over the course of the coming year as I get the fate of my last two portfolio companies settled.

      Thanks for being a loyal reader. I surely understand if there is no time in your life for long podcasts. I have the same problem since I work out of a home office and don’t have a lengthy commute.
