Up until now, I’ve been running the podcast on the cheap: a decent microphone, my wife’s borrowed laptop and Skype for pulling in Mr. Kalat. The audio has suffered a bit, because it’s really tough to balance the audio levels coming from Skype and from my microphone. I was also going mad from hearing myself on a slight delay, too.
Now that we have more than a few listeners, I thought it would be a good idea to invest in some real sound gear.
I had recently watched a video by Paul Asadoorian of PaulDotCom (now Security Weekly) fame from BSides Rhode Island where Paul describes what it takes to put on a podcast. He gave some great suggestions which helped me figure out what to do.
It might not look like a lot, but this is now how the Defensive Security Podcast will get mixed and recorded.
I can share a connection diagram if anyone is interested.
