    Thanks Allan for all the work you are doing. Really great podcast.
    Just a quick comment about the audio volume. I download episodes from itunes directly on an iphone and on some of them the volume is so low to the point I can’t hear much while I’m commuting in the car. The begining of the podcasts are fine though.
    Thanks again.
