Baseball Crank

Why did you make this?
I was trying to find an episode with a particular Cushbomb rant about the characteristics of late capitalism. After Googling to no avail, it got me thinking about using speech-to-text software to generate searchable transcripts for every episode. I was also probably inspired by this MST3k fan site.

How did you make this?
I used a cloud-based speech-to-text service, which spits out transcripts for about $1 an episode. The transcripts are not perfect—"chapo" sometimes appears as "chopper", "will menaker" is often rendered as "will medicare", etc.—but they're good enough for keyword searching.
