Wonderful Information AND Awesome Company in the Night!

I just found this amazing podcast about a month ago. I listen to two or three episodes just about every night on my iPod while I'm in bed. I have a hard time getting my mind, and the stresses from my life, to quiet down enough to be able to fall asleep at night. My remedy is to listen to "Words to Mouth". Carrie has such a sweet and kind demeanor, and she is a great interviewer as well. Carrie brings out the best in her guests, and her guests are then able to deliciously describe their books to all of us in the audience. As I listen to the podcast, I relax and forget about my troubles. I listen to about two or three of Carrie's episodes, and then I am relaxed enough to fall asleep, as I begin to dream about the book that the author and Carrie just talked about. The next day, I often get up and go put the book titles, that I just heard about the night before, on my list of books to read! Thanks so much Carrie for a great podcast, great authors, and wonderful sleep "medicine" to help me relax enough to get some sleep!!! A Loyal Fan, Lucinda (Cindy) Erickson

I would love this if I could listen without adjusting the volume for each speaker

One person's voice is often much louder than the other's. Soft-spoken people cannot be heard without making the other person (usually the host) sound like they are yelling in my ear/car/kitchen. Would love to hear these, but just can't keep my finger on the dial for 45 minutes.
