Podcasting

Microphone
Blue Yeti USB - There are much better microphones out there but this is the simplest solution for us doing a two person podcast at the moment. We will upgrade in time. One issue with it is that it is condenser mic not a dynamic mic, so it picks up more noise from the room that we record in. If you are recording a one-host podcast with just you in a location, we'd recommend the ATR-2100. It's a combo USB mic and XLR, but more importantly, it's a dynamic mic so it picks up less background noise.

Recording Software
Zoom - Zoom is an industry leading Video Conferencing service that very easily allows us to record a video or audio only podcast. It can record your multi-person podcast automatically and integrated very nicely with our scheduling service.

Scheduling Software
ScheduleOnce from OnceHub - We could not function without this service. It allows us to send an invitation to our guests or clients to schedule a recording or meeting time. No back and forth over what times work, it is completely automated and integrates very well with Zoom.
