Microphones. I recently had a discussion with a client about microphone choice. He and his colleagues were preparing to spend a large sum of money on some very fashionable microphones. And those mics would have gotten the job done, but I contend you can get the same performance (perhaps even better) out of mics that cost a lot less, even if they’re not “fashionable.” I’m happy to speak with anyone about their gear choices for podcast production. As always, this is the part where I invite you to drop me a line if I can help you simplify things.
