2020 Podcast Gift Guide
A good mic is the first step in producing a quality podcast, and starting out you don't need to break the bank. A good USB mic (one that plugs right into your computer) is all you need. Each of these are highly recommended, but I lean towards the ART-2100 most of the time.
Alternative: Blue Yeti
- Pop Filter - This will prevent hard 'P' sounds, called plosives, from making it into your recording.
- Shock Mount - This will prevent shakes from hitting your desk or other small vibrations from making it onto the record. It varies by mic.
- Boom Arm: This will keep the mic out of your way.

XLR Mic Accessories
This has been the interface and mixer I've been using for the last 6 months. It has 4 XLR inputs, a USB input, connects to your phone, and even has bluetooth. The on-board audio processing is really where it's at! If you're serious about podcasting, I strongly recommend this.
