Transcription Project

One of our goals has always been to make sociology as accessible as possible. And in the world of audio, the way to do that is to provide listeners with transcripts of the show. But with over 100 episodes, transcription is daunting!

So, we need your help.

In 2022, we’re kicking off the Social Breakdown Transcription Project, and asking fans and listeners to help us out. We’ll be running our episodes through automatic transcription software, but need help cleaning up what the software spits out. Anyone who helps us clean up two episodes worth of transcripts will be sent a Social Breakdown t-shirt and stickers in thanks, and will be credited on our site.

If you’re interested in participating in the project, please do let us know! You can email us at socbreakdown [at] (We also do service-learning projects with sociology classes and instructors!) We thank you in advance for even considering it!
