This week on Tell It Anyway, the perils of young love, the many downsides of being the DJ at your own wedding and that time Jennie almost got arrested. So many bad decisions!

Behind the story: Oh my. I loved all three stories on this one, but technically this episode was technically tough! Skype shows often have something or another wrong with them, usually related to “ducking” or the guest audio. I use Skype Call Recorder to tape those shows. If you, um, “ear-ball” levels ahead of time, the guest audio usually sounds fine enough.
This time though I thought I would be smart and tape my microphone audio on a separate app, so that I could take advantage of my great Heil PR-40. Except I didn’t check the levels of my mic in Audio Hijack where I was recording. And so, as you can probably tell, my mic is horribly overmodulated. I would have used my record from Call Recorder but it had some fatal reoccurring crackle.
So, two lessons here: 1) Get an engineer. Stat. 2) So far, not a single person has written to complain about it. Which means, in the end, the story is the only thing that matters. : )
