The equipment below will give you a mobile podcasting studio you can slip into your suitcase and easily take no matter where you travel.
Audio Technica ATR2100X – The perfect microphone for mobile podcast recording. I use this at home as well. You will want two if you are going to record in-person interviews.
Foam Ball Windscreen – This will keep you and your guest from popping Ps and cut down on wind and breath noises. Get two if you are getting two microphones.
TriPod Microphone Stand – Forget the plastic microphone stands the ATR2100X comes with. These sturdy stands will hold up to travel and look great. Get two of them if you will be traveling with two microphones.
Microphone Stand Extender – These will make your stands taller and more comfortable to use for you and your guest. Get two if you are getting two microphone stands.
Eagle Creek Medium Bag – This is the bag where I keep microphones and spare batteries. I stuff it into my carry-on backpack.
How I Do Interviews:
I do all interviews for my podcast on Zoom. In the preferences section under “Recording” I just make sure it records my audio and my guest’s audio on separate tracks.
8″ Selfie Ringlight –– When doing podcast interviews I try to record the video with my guest so I can upload onto my YouTube channel. It’s important to be well-lit and this is the ringlight that I use.
