INTERVIEWS FROM A-Z     

! Note: While the majority of interviews perfectly fine, there are a few in the archive that suffer from poor audio, where audio levels for both voices are not equal. The cause of this was a problem in the recording equipment where both left and right channels were not processed properly. Some interviews where this is noticeable are those with Lloyd Axworthy, Jane Doe, Gil Courtemanche, and Kerri Sakamoto. (In the case of Gil Courtemanche, somehow a part of the middle became displaced and ended up at the beginning...which will be corrected at a later date.) If you notice any significant problem with the audio in an interview please email me (james@engagingtheword.net) so that I can fix it up as best I can.
