    Microphone Links
  • Kustom KM4 – Cheap but will get the job done (Don’t buy this).
  • Samson C01U – Complete podcasting pack. This is USB so there is the latency effect involved with hearing yourself. Great for starting out.
  • M-Audio Nova – This is the (arguably) the best mic you can get for under $200.
  • Shure SM7B Dynamic Microphone – Fantastic mic with great audio. Top of the line. As Dan Benjamin says, it’s a great “pro-sumer” mic.

    Equipment Links
  • M-Audio MobilePre USB Mobile Preamp – If you decide to go with a mic with an XLR connection, you’ll need this.
  • Digidesign MBox 2 Mini – Awesome usb preamp that comes with pro tools. More of a “pro-sumer” item. This will only work with one mic at a time, though, so you’ll need a mixer of some sort if you want more.


    Podcasting Services
  • FeedBurner for podcasting easy podcast feed setup and stats.
  • PodPress – WordPress plugin for easy podcasting setup.
