I downloaded some podcasts, but they are in fairly bad quality.
When the guys are talking normally it's okay, but when they laugh or shout the noise is loud, distorted and painful for the ears.

IS their an equalizer setting or program I could use to make it so that the loud noises are turned down?

I hope that makes sense.
I am using an ipod and itunes if that helps.

Come on audio wizards, help me!

Wrong forum, should be in GGA

compression

if you have a mac, download a program called Hear. on the iPod, there isn't much you can do besides keep the EQ off and the volume control handy.

process the track with a compressor plugin (you're going to need audacity or something as well)

I had a demo of hear, ran out though.

I don't think this belongs in GGA, since it's not about guitars and such. It vaguely relates to amps, but not really.

Turning the volume down just means I can't hear the normal conversation.

I've put the track in garageband (since I've already got it).
And I've got compression up, but what do I do?

I have the options of:
Threshold
Ratio
Attack
Gain

So I can turn all of them up or down.
Which do I go for?

Sounds like the guys recording the podcast didn't know what they were doing. Are you sure compression is going to fix something like the gain being too high or what I refer to as "I'm eating the mic" syndrome?
