Well….we all need a microphone to get started and my favorite podcasting mic of ALL time is the Rode (R0de) Microphones PODCASTER Dynamic USB Microphone. The Rode Podcaster microphone is not only easy to use due to the usb connection, but it sounds AMAZING! It has state-of-the-art 18-bit A/D converters (makes your voice sound better) and is tailored-for-voice frequency response and low. Did I mention it has a built-in pop filter?
