This series is designed to help the new host begin podcasting and to give the experienced host some tips and tricks. The series is open to all.
The first in a series of episodes concerning recording and audio quality. For this episode I focus on the beginning of the signal chain, the microphone. Tips on choosing a microphone, and how to use it to get the sound you want.
Looking forward to the next episodes in this series.

Question about mic positioning
Thanks for a great episode - needless to say the audio is great : -) also the topic is interesting and useful. I'm just coming back to the podcasts and listening to some older shows.
Re: avoiding sibilant and popping sounds - and "angling the mic" - do we move the mic 20 degrees off to the side - or vertically? Do we move the mic position in 3d space or do we just keep it in the same position but angle it's direction 20 degrees vertically/horizontally?
