These interviews were recorded live on YouTube, with questions from myself and from the audience. Transcribing them into a format that is easy to follow took a lot of work, but it's more than worth it so that everyone can find them regardless of their access needs.
In order to make these as useful as possible, these are edited transcripts. Sometimes folks make false starts when talking, they say something then correct themselves, or they lose their train of thought – all things our brain handles great when you hear it live, but can be confusing when written down as a transcript. This is particularly confusing when used with screenreaders such as VoiceOver.
As a result, we've lightly edited these transcripts to make them easier to follow. If you'd like to see the originals for yourself, they are all on YouTube.
