With the greatest of respect to "Barry & Stuart Go Large", I was interested in this, but I'm afraid I'm not going to bother with another 3-min talking heads video number.

Having not even seen this, I'll play this round blind and take a stab at the salient points:
1) Be an investor, not a trader.
2) Stick to fundamentals, not sentiment.
3) Treat media tips/broker recs with suspicion.

I agree. Please can we have a transcript, when I am busy I cannot afford the time to watch videos. One of the reasons that I started using Motley Fool over some other sites is that you provide articles in text.

By all means issue videos but please also offer them as transcripts

Thirded. In an open plan office, videos aren't great to wile away my lunch break (and any interim procrastination!). An article is a much more universally convenient format!
The pod casts used to have transcripts.....
