Q. What is a good microphone for podcasting?

A. If you will be staying in a 'studio' situation (if you are basically talking into the microphone), the SIDE ADDRESS LD Microphone is an excellent way to go. It's an excellent microphone for the voice and will help to give you that "Radio voice".

If you want to go "on location", a small dynamic microphone might be good because they are easy to move - don't require phantom power, and can take a beating.
