Mike C's wife is a wacko - you don't need her there on Saturday. People sure can be odd.

That story is crazy.

Great episode, guys!

First, I just ordered 30 for 30 for my husband for Fathers Day, so thanks for that! Second, I am both a cancer survivor and am married to a cancer survivor and frankly I don't know which experience was worse/harder.....

All the best on Saturday Mike!

Thanks everyone. Keep fighting Alison!

@ Mike

You have a table with 9 people & an open spot now with Mike C's wife declining.

Just for FUN - invite Cheryl.

Congrats & Good Luck

Mike, you may need to move the burbs, or find a nice cardboard box to afford to live in TO. Prices are frightening to say the least, and some of the older homes are just money pits with all the problems that go with them.

Invite George Smitherman then.

Holy Christ! Could you imagine?! I'd even pay for her meal just to hear the stories and to get a visual of what we're dealing with. What an image! Wowza.

@Liz. Agreed. People are definitely odd!

@Mike. Feel your pain when it comes to house hunting. Some of these prices are nuts! Are you looking outside of Toronto at all?

There's only one place that I would live - outside of the (416). However, this information will cost you.

@Matt and @Argie

I've carved out a rectangle within which I'm looking... It's all in the 416.

Well that sucked...especially the part about your buddy's wife not going to your wedding...unbelievable.

Anyway good luck with the wedding!

BTW, the levels were super low on this podcast. Don't be afraid to bring that fader up to 0.

@Al The Royal Pain

That's it, I'm jacking the mic gain next episode.

As an experiment, I'm going to try amplifying the audio in audacity...

Stand by!

1 bag/box/container of cookies= 1 snack. Individual sleeves or rows are beverage refill indicators. I don't buy cookies.

That'll just bring up the noise as well. Ideally you want to correct these things when you record. But if you must take care of it in post, don't use the amplify filter, use the compression filter so you're not also amplifying the noise. If you still have noise, use the noise removal filter, it's actually pretty good on Audacity.

@Al The Royal Pain

I've decided to just record next time with the mic gain higher.... full blast, actually. +50!

June 12, 2013 @ 5:57 PM

Rick C in Oakville

Have to agree with Al, H&F and Geeks and Beats are no problem for levels.

Tomorrow, I'll be perfect.
