About the voices...

This one I recorded in 14 separate takes, one for each voice that appears. Then I spliced everything together. It was a lot more trouble than I thought it would be, and it probably wasn't worth it. Doing one long take, making sure each voice was consistent, and editing it later would probably be far, far easier.

Since each voice is distinctive, I removed some of the "he says/she says" where they are not needed. In this respect, the transcript is not identical to what is recorded.
