[Resolved] David Copperfield

Indeed this file has problems:
Dear LibriVox editors/coordinators,
Firstly, I'd like to say I think that LibriVox is a wonderful project and thank you for your commitment to it. I stumbled across LibriVox about a week ago and after listening to a number of recordings (pretty much every spare moment I get), was inspired to sign up and volunteer. After investigating how the whole process works, I have a huge admiration for the dedication of everyone involved.
Secondly, I'd like to give some feedback on the podcast I've been listening to. I've been listening to David Copperfield (details below) and have enjoyed it immensely so far. While I note that there are reader idiosyncracies, the difficult recordings have largely been intelligible with a little patience. That was, until I reached Chapter 36 (Enthusiasm). A lot of this recording is distorted by speeding up, slowing down, increasing/decreasing volume and frequent clipping of words, making it very difficult to understand.
If this is not just due to a corruption of the file or something you can easily fix in editing/re-uploading, I am happy to re-record the chapter for LibriVox. Just let me know where to find the version of the text used and how to send the recording to you.
Name of Book: David Copperfield by Charles Dickens
Chapter/Section Number: Chapter 36 - Enthusiasm
File format: mp3
How you downloaded the file: podcast download from iTunes
Nature of problem: popping sounds, words clipped, file sped up/ slowed down.
