Glad you asked Fetch, I didn't understand a word Sam said either :)

I do the 'Normalize' bit when we've finished recording - which I assume does some sort of audio tidying - but I haven't gone much further with trying to understand the process.

compressor - make the quiet bits louder
equaliser - the important bit of voice is at frequencies under 4kHz, cutting the frequencies above that can help make you sound richer / warmer.
Normalise - amplify everything until the point that the loudest sound is at the limit of what you can store in the file - or I would suggest doing -2 dB below the limit just to be on the safe side.

If you want we can have a chat on skype one day about it all.

(I used to be a sound engineer by trade and now work on audio encoding amongst other things)

Glad I wasn't the only one who was struggling to hear it but it's been fab so far.

If I can train myself to only talk at frequencies below 4Hz, will I actually get richer and warmer, or just sound like I’m rich and warm?

I loved the podcast and it was loud enough for me, although I was listening through headphones while I was on the move.

I really liked Fleecy’s description of where she runs. I have kingfisher envy now though.

57.5 Degrees of Pain
Episode 7 helped ease the pain of a run with the dog on a miserable wet evening. Managed to hoover up a few WSW squares on the way too.

Great blog again, finally got a chance to listen to it on the bus to work this morning.

Katie, the your 2nd attempt at my name was the correct one but I'll pretty much answer to anything
