This is the microphone that inspired my podcast. Yes, I found the mic first and then envisioned the podcast. Sometimes I do things backwards. While I was lucky enough to find this on sale, even at full price it is a very affordable beginner podcast microphone. It has excellent quality and connects to your computer via USB port.

You’ll also need a set of headphones so your speakers don’t create an echo. I use this pair of Skullcandy Lowrider because they’re comfortable and don’t pop out of my ears when I smile the way ear buds do.

And my lovely yet affordable music is from melodyloops.com.
