Great Environmental Health content, marred by technical issues

I always learn something new from this podcast. Unfortunately, the audio level of the recording is much lower than other podcasts that I subscribe to. Even turning up the volume doesn’t fix this. Hope that that this technical glitch can be fixed. Otherwise, great podcast.
