Hockey Graphs Podcast Episode 17 – Dump Trucks Full of Money


This week, Rhys and Garret ask if Mike Babcock is really worth his $6+ million annual salary, look at Canada’s dominance on the world hockey stage, examine Tyler Johnson’s unlikely ascension from marginal junior player to NHL playoff hero, and of course do some good ol’ fashioned prospecting. Join us past the jump to listen!

  • Volume troubles have reared their ugly heads again – things were good for a few weeks, but this podcast is *super* quiet – I have to turn my desktop speakers up to twice the levels of most things, and I can’t listen on my laptop at all.

      • Thefreshpots

        I didn’t notice any problems at all and I always listen on the same device. I think it might be a problem on his end. From my experience with recording changing location shouldn’t matter too much as long as you’re keeping the mic at the same distance.

        That could be, but it’s highly unlikely. Having everything sound loud and “the same in level” is an entire profession unto itself called mastering. Compression can help (and no, I don’t mean mp3 algorithms when I say compression), but it will only make everything recorded through the mic “flat” in terms of volume. It’s volume relative to other source material will be subjective.

        Sitting the same distance from the mic won’t even insure that your levels are the same, as the person with more bass frequencies in their voice will mask – or at least be perceived as louder compared to – the person with less of the same.

        Feedback from people listening on laptop speakers and built-in monaural internal PC speakers on their motherboard with absolutely no audio training should be ignored. They’re non-contenders in the same way the Buffalo Sabres should be ignored in Stanley Cup contender conversations: They aren’t equipped properly to be considered as entities with valid opinions, so treat them as such.
