Crash after hitting space bar/save as

I’m using Audacity 2.4.2 on a MacBook Pro running Ventura 13.2.1. I’ve edited my podcast using Audacity for a couple years and just recently ran into this issue.

When I record a track using a Blue Snowball Ice mic, then hit the space bar to stop recording, Audacity crashes. This also occurs when I manually click the pause button then click “Save as.” I’m attaching the “Automatic Crash Recovery” message I get. The issue appears to relate to orphan block files (?) based on the diagnostic help text. Any help is greatly appreciated!

The latest version of Audacity is 3.2.5. Note that 2.4.2 projects can be “imported” into the latest version, but that projects cannot be saved in the old format.
