Hehe it took me a long time and many iterations, even this was one of them, in the end I thought it was just a bit too long ;)


It's a large diaphragm condenser microphone, the t.bone SC 400, which is sold really cheap by Thoman http://www.thomann.de/se/the_tbone_sc400_grossmembranmikro.htm It's only about 500 SEK but for that it sourds really good.


Ah and I am using http://auphonic.com/ for automatic mastering, they use artifical intelligence to mute when someone is not talking, use a compressor and so on to get it steady, but my raw input audio has already a good and clean quality. I wrote more about my tools in this blogpost https://jeena.net/jee-podcast


Hm not yet, perhaps I could add it. Otherwise it's nice to use a Podcast manager like AntennaPod https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=de.danoeh.antennapod&hl=en for Android or OverCast https://overcast.fm/ for iOS, where you can subscribe to many different ones and it downloads new episodes automatically to your device and saves the play position and which episodes you already listened to, etc.


And the second episode is out now too for all y'all, it's about retro games https://jeena.net/pods/2
