Mentioned in This Episode

The Blue Yeti Microphone. This is NOT a bad microphone. Everyone likes it as it is long as you know how to use it. One way to make it sound better is to get it closed to your mouth and they have a new "Yeticaster" package which comes with a very nice boom arm and shock mount for $199, and then I would still pick up a pop filter for an additional $19. You just need to practice with your mic technique, and to make sure you are using it correctly. (see video)

If you compare that to the Samson Q2U package that is $69 and sounds just as good.
