The Portal Transcripts is a project to create full transcripts of all episodes of The Portal Podcast and media featuring Eric Weinstein. We use Otter.ai to generate transcripts from media and match speakers to text, and then we edit them in Google Docs. Completed transcripts are posted to The Portal Blog and The Portal Wiki. If you would like to contribute, join our transcript-focused Discord server or our main Discord server.

For our methodology and progress, see our Transcript Workflow and our progress tracking spreadsheet.
