    Big fan of the podcast. Learned about you from BOTNS. Just like the kid who didn't talk until he was 7, and then because everything was OK up until then. I wish I could understand more than half of what Laura Penny says. Is it because she's a smoker that she doesn't have any breath support. Anyhow, half the time she talks with a emphysemic croak, and then when I've adjusted the volume, she blows me out of the water with a brief loud yell. Anyhow, I'm reading Neil Gaiman and Giles Blunt thanks to you. Luckily I've already gotten through Infinite Jest. I'm going to keep listening, but please ask your guests to make an effort to keep the levels sort of, um, level.

      Thanks Will. I cranked Laura's volume for the second half of the show, so hopefully we didn't break your speakers throughout. It was the first time we interviewed anyone by phone so I think her vaulting levels were my fault. I am a rank amateur audio engineer. Apologies. Thanks for staying with us.

      I am curious — are you reading anything you would recommend?
