Transcript (Introduction):

Steven: Hello, welcome to the podcast "Who am I". I'm Steven.

William: And I'm William.

Steven: And this is episode 2. Welcome. Last podcast was really fun and we had a good time, just chatting away. You've been working hard on all the editing and stuff, so that's much appreciated.

William: Yeah, that was an interesting process. I got to learn about video editing, uploading, publishing. And pretty soon I will have the transcript ready to put on the webpage. And then hopefully our pages will become more searchable that way. Also, I really want us to make a trailer. I'm going to collect some material for that. It could just be cutouts from the show.

Steven: Yeah.

William: Maybe funny moments, maybe dropping my phone could be part of it. It must be good for something, right?

Steven: Organizing a podcast from scratch and what big things could go wrong.

William: Exactly, yeah. But there's no time pressure. It just takes however long it takes. But it'll become a routine and go quicker. So I look forward to that.

Steven: Yes.
