Hey guys, I just caught this post.
I could definitely come in and take a look at what you have and give you some advice on the best way to mic, compress and output the podcast based on the gear you already have, and possibly suggest an easy, inexpensive/free fix to any audio issues.
I'm at the training center, and theater all the time, and do stuff like this professionally. I'd obviously do it for free.
Big fan of the podcast.
