    Hey guys,

    My plan is to start a podcast with two fellow trainers at my gym. I have absolutely no clue about packages or what's good. I'm hoping some of you may have ideas about what I should be looking at.

    Wasn't sure if here or the real life sub forum was the correct place.

    Thanks in advance.

    At least one podcast I know of has been using these...

    Zoom H6 Recorder
    HSeries II Iconic Unidyne Vocal Microphone

    However, if you aren't worried about a slew of people talking without sharing mics, the H5 could also get the job done (as could the H4, but it has been discontinued).

    A YouTube search for Zoom H5 or H6 should turn up plenty of review and how-to videos for them.

    Cheers. We've yet to actually purchase anything, currently looking at the pros and cons of youtbe vs podcast to begin with. Big debate...I'll have a gander at these, thanks again!

    Use Zencastr to record each microphone separately so you end up with an audio file per microphone. Makes cutting out noise and editing much easier.
