Audio editing increases the sound quality, shortens each episode by ~2.5 minutes by editing out pauses, ums, ahs, etc. saving hours of listener's time but costs about $50. Saving 2.5 minutes on a 30 minute episode would justify a tip of about $4.16 if your time is worth $100/hour. A $0.25 tip implies an hourly value of $6. We do not take your time and attention for granted and currently there is no advertising so please do not take our money for granted and support the podcast!
