All about Hardware Equipment  - 
Marco just dropped his mega-review of podcasting microphones. He put the Shure 87C at the top of his list. A couple of the usual suspects, some interesting choices that don't normally get a lot of attention, and some notable misses.

Based on the list at the bottom it looks like a lot of those will get filled in over time.
Podcasting Microphones Mega-Review. First published on September 7, 2015. Will be updated over time. It's hard to find useful microphone recommendations for podcasters: most people have only tried one or two, except pro audio engineers, who have very different needs and record in very different ...

All about Hardware Equipment  - 
These new mixers from Yamaha look like they have a lot of potential.

Usually when I write about Yamaha at NAMM, I’ll talk about new guitars or keyboards, but today the company introduced a new mixer it said was designed...

General Podcast Discussion  - 
Kai Ryssdal periscoped this evening's Marketplace broadcast. It's always great to get a peek in to how different things are made. Some applies more to live radio but this gets packaged up in to a daily podcast as well.

Introduce yourself, your Podcast  - 
Hi everyone. I've been lurking around this great community and pitching in when I can, but I haven't formally introduced myself or my show. The show is The Tinycast at and covers topics ranging from library catalog systems to deadly software bugs in about five minutes or so.

I'm always open to feedback but you can just pretend it's a link to an interesting blog post too.
This is Matt Croydon and you are listening to The Tinycast. I'm always looking for ways to make this show better. I read about how other people make podcasts. I learn about how people make Radio, a...
