This cannot be done if it’s a video or audio podcast, making the individual frustrated due to the wastage of time. But other than this, it might be also due to them not being able to focus well during the long YouTube podcast, most people do not have significantly long attention spans. They might get distracted resulting in them missing out on the context. This is very unlike reading where they cannot get back to it instantly and detect the exact sentence they left off from. It leads to them missing many points during the YouTube podcast hence not remembering much from it after it concludes.

Having podcasts on YouTube and then on a blog in writing as well provides more options for the audience, which is what they always want and ask for. For example, while listening to a song on YouTube people prefer the video with audio and lyrics both. Similarly, with podcasts the listeners, if they miss out on some points, can immediately scroll down read the write-up and immediately catch-up with the video via transcription. You cannot generate new leads from a 10-minute video, only people already familiar with your content will be interested. More options guarantee more accessibility.
