  • Dave Mark’s audio is so very faint compared to John and Dave, that I had to turn up the volume so much, that when Dave or John spoke it nearly blew out of my seat.

    1. You’re totally right! And I woke up this morning and realized I had a way to fix this, though it meant uploading a new video (which is embedded in this article, just like the old one is).
