investing into a great microphone is the single best thing you can dio to improve the quality of your podcast. You don't need to spend more than about $60 but you shouldn't plan on spending much less than this amount, either. You just can't use the built in microphone and your computer. The quality is too poor and your listeners deserve better. The microphone I use is the audio technica at ER 2100. I also use two pieces of optional equipment Ah, mixer and a digital recorder, these pieces of equipment saving about a half hour of time in the editing step for producing each podcast episode. In addition to the three pieces of equipment, there are three different software programs I used to produce my podcast. I used the free, no frills cross platform software audacity toe edit my podcast, and I use all phonic to process my audiophile Afterwards. All phonic provides two hours per month of processing for free and helps to remove the noise and normalize the loudness of my audio file. Finally, I use I D three editing software to place the 83 tags on my file that let podcast players know the episode. Title number, author and show summary
