Podcast Random thoughts

That didn’t take very long. After publishing my first episode I got a question almost right away on what I used to record my show.

Here’s the list:

I took a while picking and selecting what to get. I initially wanted a Audio-Technica ATR2100x-USB but it has been unavailable everywhere for a couple of weeks now. So I just bit the bullet and went for a higher spec setup. I specifically went for a cardioid dynamic microphone and not a condenser. I wanted more of that broadcast sound and at the same time avoid picking up unwanted background noise as much as possible. A condenser, or so I read, picks up way more background noise.

Marco Arment’s microphone blog post was very helpful in getting to know some basics and find a good microphone amp suggestion.

For hosting I use Buzzsprout.
