Great shows guys.

You're a laugh a minute. I like it. You're the two funniest people in Linux podcasting.

Audio Recording

It's obvious that this along with the previous episode had some good content and I was eager to listen to them. However, it was very difficult for me to listen to the last 2 episodes because of the extreme panning done on the voices. This doesn't work very well with voice recordings because we don't naturally hear conversations split that way in real life. Unfortunately, this meant that I had to skip these two episodes.

IIRC, Skype Call Recorder does end up doing this to the recording (I remember going through this with Linux Basement). The solution for me was to import the audio to Audacity (you can use any audio editor, of course), split the channels, and then pan them accordingly so they were only slightly panned from one another. I kindly ask that you please consider this in your future episodes. The quality of the audio isn't much of an issue as it's obvious the content is good, but the extreme panning becomes a distraction from the good content.
