Regarding the demise of Levelator, I know you guys said you don’t use Adobe products, but Audition has this built-in as a feature called Match Loudness. You can even have it set the levels to different settings, although I stick with -16db.
Also, regarding phone sizes, I find it interesting how often people who eschew big screen computers or second screens, as Zac does, also prefer smaller phones. I have small hands, but I always want the biggest iPhone possible. I can never have too much display space, whether iPhone, iPad or Mac. For example, I have a 27” display connected to the 27” iMac and I sometimes even connect my TV to my iMac too, in order to get even more display.
Inspired by Zac, I disconnected my 27" display from my 2018 MacBook Pro, so that I could enjoy greater focus and other benefits.
That lasted about 10 minutes. I missed the real estate.
And I don’t even have a fancy-shmancy 4K or 5K external display, just an ancient 2010 Apple Cinema Display,

It pains me greatly to lose all those precious high-rate heart beats!
I believe this is the one Federico Viticci uses:
