MBA1620 Q&A Wednesday: What’s the best mic for podcasting?

Podcasting: it’s a lot better with the right equipment.

It’s Q&A Wednesday, and we’re helping one listener choose a crucial piece of gear: the mic! We’ve been doing this for a while — this is episode 1,620 — so we’ve tried quite a few.

The mic we use isn’t the most expensive one, but it does everything a podcaster needs. But more importantly, we control the space we record in. 

That has a much bigger impact on sound quality than anything else.

Learn how to get the most professional sound, whatever the budget. Whether you’ve got a full studio to work with, or nothing but a closet, your podcast can sound awesome. Click Play!
