Some awkward editing, but there is a lot of random problems involved with this free flow format. Adam K. Ernest visits with us and gives us the low down on the Follow My Vote DAC from followmyvote.com.
I forgot to run a leveler/compressor. So the audio leveling is a bit off. I forget doing this stuff in a rush to get it out the same day.
