Have you noticed how bad audio can ruin a podcast or video? Having a great mic really helps improve audio quality. One of the gifts I received for Christmas was a Blue Microphones Yeti, which is a great USB microphone suitable for just about any of your audio needs. I wanted to illustrate the difference a good microphone makes, so the remainder of the blog post is in an audio file. It’s essentially a 4 minute podcast where I talk about why a good mic is needed and let you hear for yourself a comparison with common microphones that people use for podcasting.
