On Episode 44 of the Appendix N Book Club, we have Fiona Maeve Geist on the show. After finishing our awesome conversation, we discovered that her audio was distractiongly crackly. We edited it as best we could, and posted the episode to our Patreon feed a few weeks before the offical drop date (tomorrow).
Today we invested some of the money we raised from our first month on Patreon in audio repair software (Isotope RX7 Standard) and because of this we were able to VASTLY improve her track… the day before it goes public. If you listened to it on the Patreon feed, the one being released tomorrow sounds so much better.
Please listen to the attached BEFORE and AFTER audio to hear for yourself.
Becuase of your support, our past and future episodes are going to sound even better. As time permits, we plan to go back and fix the audio on some of our previous episodes (we had the same issue with Episode 32 – Philip José Farmer’s “The Gates of Creation”).
We couldn’t have done this without your support!
