I Was Just Trying to Help Audio Clipon This American Life, hosted by Ira Glass
I’m listening to this story interviewing Sharon Snyder by Ira Glass, on his piece from This American Life, and the first thing that comes to me is the emotion swelling inside of anger at how she was fired for something so small. The frustration at such a sequence of events is baffling. So Sharon simply provides a form to someone who requested it directly and she is fired under the act that as a clerk she was providing legal counsel.
This clip was interesting in other ways, for one the difference in volume from Ira to Sharon was drastic, it was difficult to hear Ira and almost deafening to listen to Sharon. Aside from that, the story being told was captivating enough to not notice much else going on until the summary background music at the end picked up. At that point, I could not hear Ira hardly at all anymore. I’m not sure if I chose a bad clip or a wrong segment for audio for this unit, but, I did enjoy the story.
I hope to improve upon this on my own audio by really focusing on the sound levels so that others don’t express the same difficulty I had.
