Unfortunately, we do not have the resources to transcribe the KQED-produced program "Forum" at this time. Our short "Perspectives" pieces are available in text form at this link https://www.kqed.org/perspectives, and most of the content from "The Do List" is available here https://www.kqed.org/arts/program/the-do-list. Also "The California Report" site contains most of the on-air reports in article format https://www.kqed.org/news/program/the-california-report

Some NPR and other national programs do have transcripts available. Please contact the program directly using their official website (do a web search for the name of the program and "official site").
