OK, here's my first official recording. Some of the names were tough but I did some research and I think I got them correct. Let me know what you think.

Excellent reading, Matt! :thumbs:

I have no PL comments on the reading itself. Only thing that is missing is 5 seconds of silence at the end. If you can add that, it will be PL OK!

Exactly! Just reupload it with exactly the same name. Once you do, let me know. I will then check it once more, and then it should be PL OK. :)

Hi Matt,
Section 33 is nicely read :clap: Although there are two things that need to be addressed:
- there is some background noise present throughout the recording, so you'll need to run noise cleaning on it; let me know if you need help with that.
- the recording checked in at 93.1dB, which is outside the acceptable range of 86-92dB. If you de-amplify the entire recording by about 4dB, you will get right to the sweet spot of 89dB.

I'm not sure if it's sexist or Stockholm Syndrome :shock:

This doesn't need changing, it's PL OK like this, but the pronunciation of Bologna the city is not like the lunch meat baloney; the last syllable is more like in lasagna. See https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=21&v=efYhl9lYw4s
Additionally (also fine for now), be careful when you're doing lines where someone is speaking softly--you don't want to go so soft as to be no longer audible in the recording. :)

Neither of those two things need immediate fixing, so I'm gonna mark it as PL OK--nice reading!
