Here is the edited version. I added the compressor and added some more silence at the end. I think the clicking is my keyboard when I would start and stop recording, I tried to edit some of them out, but I wasn't able to get them all.
Thanks! Let me know again if I need to do some more tuning and I'll get to it!
Specs on checker look great, but end silence is now too long. Could you get it to right around 5 seconds, please? In Audacity the bottom right block can be set to show 'Start and Length of Selection', which is really handy and much faster than doing the math oneself!

Thanks,
~Rosebud

Hello,

I was pretty sure I fixed all of this but it didn't say PL OK in the box so wanted to make sure there wan't something I was missing. I downloaded the checker and it says it's at 89.4db and I fixed the length at the end and it looks like it's right around 5 seconds. Let me know if I'm missing something else. Thank you!

Time is 21:26
Did the entire file load for sure? I'm coming up with a total of 8:50, with only 3.4 seconds of silence at the end. :hmm: Beginning silence is slightly over a second, but is probably fine to leave as is.

Section 21 For check. And the discussion on fox/jackal hunting is gross.

Constructive criticism is always welcome. Do I need to slow down? How's my enunciation? Did I stumble, or pause too long? Please let me know!

I didn't realize 5 seconds was the target for end silence, sorry! I think the end silence should be about 5 seconds now.

My mistake, you're right it's 8:50 but not sure why the end seems shorter. It looked like on my end it was approx 5 seconds.

OK. I’ll spot PL it as soon as I can, but that’ll hardly happen today yet. Wonder why the end silence difference though- that’s strange! I’ll check my download again and make sure it wasn’t cut off on my end somehow, because that’s happened before.

Thanks for the recording, Diana. Yes, the book seems to have A LOT on hunting... sign of the times, I suppose.

I'll take it if no one else is jumping on it, I'll look to get it recorded some time this week.

Edit: And by "it" I mean the orphaned section 31
