Is my MP3 player dying, or is there something a bit odd about the audio here and there in this episode, particularly some of Shel's segments?

BTW, meant to say last week--I rejoiced at the idea of two episodes a week, even though I hardly have time to listen to one.
 
Sallie -- I noticed the same thing, especially with +Shel Holtz in  episode 683. I thought there was something wrong with my Bluetooth audio, but +Neville Hobson's voice came though just fine.
 
It's not your MP3 player, Sallie; after recording and during edit, I realized something was amiss. I'm still trying to diagnose it, but have set up an alternative recording system in the meantime so it won't happen again. It was far too late in the UK to re-record by the time I realized there was a glitch. I plan to mention it on Monday's show.
 
Glad it wasn't just me, though frankly I'd love an excuse to replace the Fuze with something that doesn't have video and isn't purely touch-screen. Touch-screen is Teh Suck for using while driving, and this one is too sensitive and keeps accidentally rewinding or forwarding to the next show.
 
Glad to know it wasn't my new headphones causing the problem. I finally got nice noice-cancelling Sennheisers and I thought something was wrong with them!
