Equipment List for a Quick Podcast Startup

Here are some ideas for a mobile podcasting setup

 

Portable Recording Device:

 

Option 1: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1026852-REG/zoom_h5_handy_recorder.html

 

Option 2: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1253811-REG/zoom_h4npro_4_channel_handy_recorder.html

 

Option 3: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/967366-REG/zoom_h6_handy_audio_recorder.html

 

Don’t forget your micro SD card!

 

You then want a microphone, windscreen, and xlr cable to plug into the recording device.

 

Option 1: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1148768-REG/shure_sm58s_mic_with_switch_20.html

 

Option 2: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1449997-REG/rode_podmic_dynamic_podcasting_microphone.html (this one would be better)

 

Option 3: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/470257-REG/Rode_PROCASTER_Procaster_Dynamic_Vocal.html (higher quality)

 

There are many more options. bhphotovideo.com or sweetwater.com are helpful websites and the customer service is great if you have any questions on products.

 

Headphones for monitoring and listening back: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/49510-REG/Sony_MDR_7506_MDR_7506_Headphone.html

 

Perhaps mic stands if you don’t want to hold the microphone.

 

Here’s an option, but there are many to choose from: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1464442-REG/pyle_pro_pmksdt25_height_adustable_desktop_microrophone_stand.html

 

Here’s a pop filter if you have a microphone without a windscreen or a built-in pop filter.

Quick options for recording with a computer

 

USB Microphones for computers are easy to use and generally sound decent.

 

Option 1: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1103930-REG/blue_836213002070_yeti_usb_microphone_black.html?sts=pi&pim=Y

 

Option 2: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/450171-REG/Rode_PODCASTER_Podcaster_USB_Broadcast_Microphone.html?sts=pi&pim=Y

 

I would recommend a pop filter with those.
