There was a HUGE problem with the sound levels on epsiode 11. Mainly the fact that if I turned up the noise so I could hear Roy and Andrew, my eardrums were almost burst be JD's voice and the music. So then I turned it down so I could listen in peace, but then I couldn't hear Roy and Andrew! Please fix this problem. NOW.
