1: Origin Story: Sam Glass

Apology up front: There was very bad background noise from the AC we had going on. So I was forced to learn how to edit things in post because Sam was gone and I was really bothered by the constant background hum. So the solution was to yank the Low Cut setting way down in Garageband EQ Controls. and the rest can be tweaked to get an optimal audio experience (important to have a nice handoff from intro to main part) Here are some helpful links:
