Honestly I started the show because I had done an AM radio show for about a year and saw how much access it gave me to the thought leaders in my industry – turns out it’s now produced fun, fame and profit
I kid you not I started recording phone coversations on a speaker phone with a mic capturing me and the guest – I don’t do that anymore. Now I use a mixer condenser mic and software to edit each track individually.
Podcasting has opened so many doors because of the people that I’ve had on the show and then become friends with. People like Guy Kawasaki, Seth Godin, Harvey MacKay, David Allen – have all endorsed my book and created opportunities for me because we met while I recorded twenty minutes or so of our conversation.
For me it’s a big piece, we’ve had significant revenue sponsorships for the podcast, but more than that it’s a tool to integrate into my overall content and education puzzle. I write books and products, speak and consult and my blog and podcast are the proving ground for a lot of my ideas and a great deal of my exposure to the folks that end up buying our products and sharing our brand.
More from our PODCAST LUMINARIES SERIES:
Man do podcasters love their microphones! And it seems that there are a lot of podcasters interested in knowing more about what microphone to use as well as what others use.
We asked on twitter: What’s your favorite podcasting microphone?
It certainly was a lively conversation!
I’m amazed by all the high end microphones our producers are using! I think we’re going to have to do some diggin’ for a future post to provide y’all with some ‘economic’ choices. 🙂
For those of you that missed the conversation, here are the microphones suggested by podcasters for podcasting:
karinhoegh Karin Hoegh @libsyn I agree with @theramenNoodle Heil PR40 #podcasting
ctrlaltdeliver Jim Meeker @karinhoegh @libsyn @theramenNoodle Heil PR40 is not in this teacher’s budget, but is in hopes and dreams #podcasting
mediacastguy MediacastGuy @libsyn Heil PR40
bcdunkel Brian Dunkel @libsyn Anyone suggesting any good budget microphones? #impoor
RickEmerson Rick Emerson @TheMediocreShow @libsyn You…are correct, sir.
bonnyface Julie Kuehl @libsyn @bcdunkel Logitech headsets don’t get enough credit. They’ll do for a tight budget.
reformedcast Scott Oakland @libsyn I use the Heil PR40 and absolutely believe it is the best mic available!
jtswhipped jtswhipped @libsyn @legopolis @bcdunkel @themediocreshow @rickemerson @richardgperry @bonnyface @reformedcast shure mics. The only way.
Do you see any microphones that are missing from the list? What do you use?
