For podcasters, there are some great choices of microphone. This one is mine. I tend to prefer this over the AT2020 for my voice, and room sound set up, but I like a few others as well. You do you! There is an MV7 version that's a USB cord mic. This mic requires an interface and a cloud lifter. I recommend the Scarlett 2i2 interface. This is the link to my Amazon affiliate shop link, so click that pic. Happy podcasting!

This is my pic for voiceover mics (along with a 416). The 103 jumps in price $300 and is more than a small studio needs, but I wouldn't say no. There are a lot out there, and many do a great job, I'm just giving you my fave. This mic needs an interface, and I recommend the Apollo Solo. This is my Amazon affiliate link, so click the pic. Happy shopping and rock that mic!

Lovingly called, just, Pei Pa Koa by the voiceover industry, this is The Stuff. Loquat syrup with honey and spices that soothes throats between sessions and helps keep me going through long battle cry sessions. It also happens to taste delicious.  This is my Amazon affiliate link so click the pic, and get addicted like the rest of us.

This is the first interface I worked with. Don't let folks crab on about this lil work horse. It's a fine unit and the only consideration about upgrading, will be with mics like the TLM 103. (see Interface 2) This baby is easy plug-and play and has served me well.  This is my amazon Affiliate link so click the pic.

If folks want a mid level interface, between the Scarlett and the bell & whistle options of the Apollo, this is a fine choice. This is my affiliate page so, click the Iink!

Key lights for streamers and zoom. If you're streaming games, hosting zoom meetings or coaching, great lighting is critical. Here's one of the great options out there. And it's always good to have an extra camera mount for the bts shots, and "camera in the picture" shot.

This is a great dock for all your interface, secondary monitor etc, options. a bit more reliable than a Belkin, and it's charging capable. This is my Amazon affiliate link, so click the pic.

If you need a USB mic to start, here's one of a few I think get the job done. This Rode, & the AT2020 are pretty equal in performance, I'm just giving choice. 

I'd highly suggest getting a mic with an XLR connector cable, but if price point is your consideration, this is a good way to get started.
This is my amazon affiliate link, so click the pic and get recording!

Tula USB Mic - podcasting | portable

This is a mic more folks are going to, trying out and using for podcasting and Clubhouse. This is comparable to the Blue Raspberry (discontinued) or the AT2020.
Let me know what you think!

I'm a huge fan of Sennheiser products and their wonderful customer service. I've used these since the start of my vo career and will always recommend these to folks. There are a few great choices out there, but these are a solid, excellent option.

Triton Fethead

Recommended by the wonderful Carl Welden. A great solution for amping your gain on the go.  A great piece of gear for traveling light and still giving great sound.
