I had a setting wrong in my recording program and ended up having a very different sound quality than what I had wanted. I played with it as much as I could, but I apologize for the bad quality audio, especially the breathing that you can hear, the mouse clicks, and when you can hear me swallow and such. (It’s probably not as bad as it sounds, but I shudder at it all, because I want to provide y’all with the best quality possible).
