Shure MV7 USB Microphone

This is the Godfather of podcast mics. Tried and true, the Shure MV7 USB mic lives up to its legendary name with superior sound quality and a sleek design. This model was created for the digital entrepreneur who wants to plug directly into a laptop via USB, rather than needing an XLR audio interface. (Although there is also an XLR port as well!) With silent touch controls and a solid all-metal body, this is a great option for solo podcasters who do most of their interviews remotely and want the absolutely best sound quality.

Sony ZV-e10

I am OBSESSED with this camera. Not only is it my everyday webcam and content creation camera (hello 4K video and direct camera to MacBook USB-C interface!), but it also takes phenomenal photos! I've taken it on 3 international trips and gotten incredible, professional-quality images thanks to its ability to accomodate any Sony E-Mount lens! With a fully articulating screen, product focus, a bokeh button (automatic background blur), and a decent built-in mic (although I still recommend investing in a separate mic) this is the BEST camera for course creators on the market! (I have a Canon M50, Sony a6000, and a ZV-1 - for content creation, the ZV-e10 beats them all!) 

  •  Large 24.2MP APS-C Exmor CMOS Sensor and fast BIONZ X processor
  • 4K Movie oversampled from 6k w/ full pixel readout, no pixel binning
  • Product Showcase Setting transitions focus from face to object
  • Background Defocus button instantly toggles between defocus effect on/off

InnoGear Adjustable Desk Microphone Stand

I used to use a desk-mounted suspension boom with springs and a clamp that was always connected to my desk. I LOVE this mic stand so much better! It sits on top of my desk (which means I can take it OFF of my desk and put it away when I'm done with it!) I LOVE clean space, so this is definitely the stand for me, and if you love having a clutter-free desk, this is also the mic stand for you!

FDUCE SL40 Vocal Dynamic Podcast Microphone

If you're on a budget but don't want to sacrifice excellent sound quality, scoop up this FDUCE (I truly don't know how to pronounce this name) mic. It's absolutely comparable to the Shure mic and for a fraction of the price! It also has both USB-C and XLR ports, a mic jack, and sound controls right on the mic body. This mic is sturdy, well-built, and a formidable competitor to the Shure MV7.
