Equipment List for a Quick Podcast Startup

Updated: Jan 25

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.
