Bring all levels to -3

In another audio program I was able to bring all of the levels to -3 but I can’t figure out how to do it on Audacity. In one help section it says I should normalize the audio but that doesn’t do the trick. Essentially, I want to go through an entire thirty minute podcast and make all audio peak at -3 and not have to amplify a litany of sections.

Normalization (Like Amplify) is a linear adjustment. It adjusts everything by the same amount, so the highest peaks are set to the target level.

The Limiter effect can bring the peaks down to -3dB. But it will only affect peaks above the limit. You’ll have to amplify first if you want to bring some peaks up.
