Please ask your sound man to use more audio compression for guests like Fry, push up the quiet speech and lower the loud. Thanks so much for all the great guests and insights 👍

Sam seems to spend most of his time trying to defend his mindfulness views against somebody who is polite enough not to say it direct but clearly feels it is a waste of time.

I had no problem understanding the dialogue here, and in excited to listen again to see if I can figure out what everyone is talking about. Mr. Fry's appearance here was a total, joyous surprise. excellent work, Sam. Thank you.

Had to abort. Mr. Fry's voice modulates from a thick British Churchillisque roar to a barely audible whisper in the same sentence. Too bad, I would have enjoyed his comments.

Audio is fine, tho I can believe those aristocratic accents are hard to tune into. Kinda turns me off.

Not sure why people can't hear him. Maybe watch a bit of Jeeves and Wooster first to warm up?

the only reason I ever discovered Sam and his work was because of Hitch. He's sorely missed.

So amazing! Tough audio, sounds like he either moves around a lot (as indicated by Stephen mentioning Sam coming over to fix his mic) or his voice variates in volume. Probably both. used headphones in a car to hear it.

Love Fry. If my daddy was gay I'd be happy for Fry to be my second daddy.

Sam Harris is like a disc jockey for a smooth jazz radio station without the smooth jazz.
