Hi there! My name is Aaron. I made this show to help people like you make a great podcast. If you're interested in learning about podcast production, storytelling, recording gear, growing an audience, getting better at communicating and speaking, overcoming the hurdles, connecting with your listeners, expanding your personal and professional network, and other things like that, this is the show for you. Since 2012, I've been lucky enough to work with many great podcasts, including shows from Dribbble, seanwes, 5by5, SVS Learn, Shoptalk, CodePen, and more. This show contains nearly everything I've learned about podcasting in the past 10 years, and I'm still making updates and new episodes as I learn more. Thanks for listening, and happy podcasting!

There are a lot of things you’ll need to buy if you want to start a podcast. In this episode, I talk about why a great microphone is an essential investment for your show, and how much you’ll need to invest if you want a great setup that will set you apart from other podcasters. My goal was to create a comprehensive podcasting equipment guide. I don’t talk about every microphone, interface or pre-amp available, but I cover the essential pieces of gear you’ll need to get started.
