This is my first time using Levelator, let me know what you think of the sound quality and how the easy is was to hear everyone clearly and distinctly.
Also this is the first time I decided not to edit the conversation to remove pauses or my ever present "umm". Hope it's not too distracting.

I apologize for the noise of me flipping pages. I keep forgetting the mic picks up all sounds and not just my voice.
I mention Star Blazers and Alain calls it Yamato. The original name for the television series was Starship Yamato, it was changed to Star Blazers when it was syndicated for US release. The American producers didn't think a US audience would watch a show dedicated to Japanese WWII battleship.
