Hello, it took a while this time, but here is section 20, length 33:46:

https://librivox.org/uploads/m8b1/gkchesterton_20_ward_128kb.mp3

There is some clicking in the file and I don't think it's plosives, but I'm not experienced enough to know what it is or how to fix it. If you could give me any tips on that, I'd appreciate it.
Also, I will take section 24.
Thanks
Candace

Hi Candace,

20 is PL OK!

As for the clicking, it could be a mild form of plosives. It is minor and I had to have the volume all the way up to notice it. What I would do personally is speak slightly to the side of the mic. Some people use a pop filter. I don't know your mic setup, so you may already be doing that. If you want more technical advice, I would ask in the "Need Help" forum ~ I'm sure you will get lots of answers there! :-)

OK, that's helpful, I do have the mic to the side, but I don't have a pop filter--yet! :)
Thank you very much!
Candace
