    You need to do something about the volume of your recording. I’ve got the volume cranked up all the way on my computer, and I can barely hear you.

    thanks so much for the podcast. i look forward to these every week. You are giving so much information and education. thanks so much.

    i have 2 comments. 1, the volume on these videos is VERY low. it is difficult to listen to, both on the embedded and on the downloaded WMV’s. Also you may want to look at for video. really high quality and nice

    2. regarding the hypnosis site quality award. anyone can still take your picture and add a link to your site and it would appear geniune. i tried and it is just a link. but if you look at a real website seal, here is an example: look at the BBB seal, if you click on it, the link goes to a site on the BBB website which gives the name of the sealed company’s name.

    Roxann – Thanks for letting us know that the audio volume is too low on the video. I have notified my IT staff and they will get right on it on Monday.

    Ankur – It was a pleasure having you in class. Thanks for letting me know about the audio problem. Thanks for your suggestion about improving our Quality Hypnosis Award program.

    Hi Cal,
    I don’t want to get you into any trouble with these questions, And I hope that any psychologist who happen across your videos understand that hypnotists and our clients believe in what we are doing. I also have the tendancy to enjoy stirring things up. For example I’m the guy who recently envoked the energy behind the question of PhD’s in clinical hypnotherapy on the yahoo group. That was just plain fun!
    I recently was invited to sit with 2 PhD’s in psychology that are running a drug and alcohol rehab center. Because I can’t work with someone who is currently using I have to have a place to send people who want to use my services so they can get cleaned up before the hypnosis begins. These two very well experienced psychologists were almost giddy at the idea of talking to a hypnotist and I even used some techniques I learned from NLP to gain nearly instant rapport with them, but I was shocked at how little they knew about hypnosis. We entered into a verbal deal of cooperation and mutual support of each other and that was just plain fun too!
    Love your work, your the best.

    Cal please re-post this podcast. The audio is very low. I’ve got it cranked and it’s still hardly audible. Always good stuff. Thanks. George
