    I enjoyed your podcast. Lots of good stuff here! The only critique I have is can you better match the lead-in and out music volume to your voice volume? I had to lower the volume while the lead-in music played. Once you started speaking I had to raise the volume. Then once the lead-out music started it nearly blew me away! 🙂 Thanks again for doing this. I’m looking forward to more!

      Thanks for listening and thanks for the feedback. We’ll make that adjustment for the next episode!
