Top mics for amateur podcasting
PodMic, RØDE Microphones
If you want to podcast like a pro, then you need to take a look at RØDE. The Australian brand has been a market leader in the audio software field since 1967. The most important piece of equipment when you’re starting out in podcasting? The mic, of course. We love the new PodMic. It’s a broadcast grade microphone that can be used with any XLR interface. The ultimate gear if you want your voice to have that smooth professional quality. Have a little more budget? Check out the new RØDECaster Pro

Looking to set up your own podcast studio on a budget? The Snowball iCE is a great place to start. The easy-to-use, portable mic comes with a tripod desktop stand and cable and can be used with both Mac and PC systems. We love the retro design too – it’s the perfect add-on to any desk space. If your looking for a versatile mic this is a good one to pick, because aside from being fantastic for recording a podcast, it’s also Skype certified and it’s great for gaming too. Now, are you listening carefully?
