  1. Yo CLo! Is there anyway you guys can turn up the volume on your audio? I generally listen to all my podcasts on my mp3 player on the way to and from work. And of all of the podcasts yours is so low that I cannot hear a thing. And I have GOOD sounding headphones, which are the same head phones I use in my music recording studio. I haven’t been able to listen to about the last 6 podcast because the volume was so low. And I look forward more so to your podcasts then all the ones I listen to on a regular basis. Thanks if you can do something. But if not, then I will just take a little time out to use my own recording studio program to turn up the volume so that I can catch up on all your shows. Thanks brother!
