Microphone

The entire quality of podcast entirely depends on the quality of your audio, you can only relay your message through audio. Of course, going for better-quality microphones could mean that it is more expensive. But you can control your costs through thorough research and canvassing.

Headphones

Pop Filter

Have you ever noticed that your “b’s” and “p’s” sound amplified as compared to the rest of the letters in the alphabet? In order to avoid this, you can speak on the side of the microphone or you can use a pop filter instead.

Its main function is to control the pop that is produced by the letters previously mentioned.
