Dean Olsher - it's so good to hear your voice on the radio again. Where have you been and where/when will we be able to tune into you again?

Could the guest host please speak up? I can here all the guest clearly but can't hear the questions and comments of the host; turning up the volume in my office is not an option.
Thank you.
