The Remasters, and also a Mea Culpa
There have been some complaints that the volume level on some episodes is too low, and we apologize.  First of all, we are sorry if you have had difficulty listening to some of the shows.  We appreciate that you take the time to do so, and we also want you to hear what the guests have to say.  So we have gone back and reopened certain tracks, thrown all the sound magic we have at them, and made them newly available to you via streaming off of this site.  We have also started replacing interviews on iTunes with superior versions, but that project will necessarily take awhile because of the hosting fees associated with it.  If you might like to help make the process faster, please consider a donation.

In the meantime, these episodes have had the volume turned up, and you can listen to them off of this site right now, and whenever you’d like to:

Episode 134: Gavin Chanin which is also updated in iTunes
Episode 130: Peter Weygandt which is also updated in iTunes
Episode 129: Frank Cornelissen which is also updated in iTunes
Episode 128: Alex Moreau which is also updated in iTunes
Episode 123: Allen Meadows which is also updated in iTunes
Episode 122: Roberto Paris which is also updated in iTunes
Episode 116: Guiseppe Vaira which is also updated in iTunes

If you had trouble hearing those episodes before, you might give them another shot now.  We’ll continue improving the volume on other tracks as time allows, and we’ll update this post accordingly.  If you have a specific request for an episode to take a look at, please leave it in the comments.

Thank you and thank you for your patience!

Cheers, Levi
