Better Podcasting #185 – Enhancing a Minimal Podcast Setup

We make it clear that our stance is that in order to podcast, you can achieve great sound simply by using a simple microphone like the Audio-Technica ATR2100, AT2005 or Samson Q2U. In this episode we discuss some ways you can attempt to enhance a simple podcast setup without buying new hardware (ok, we’ll talk a bit about some light hardware changes too).

In this week’s Better Podcasting Download, SP gives his thoughts on the Backpack Studio update to now allow live streaming.

Finally, in this week’s Better Podback, we take listener feedback including a poll about whether or not our listeners live-stream.
