Ep. 02: "Is the ATR2100 microphone overrated for Podcasting?"

TPSguide.org | JCALdigital.org
In this episode Josh (@joshuacliston on Twitter) discusses his experiences as an owner and user of several ATR2100 and AT2005 Podcasting microphones.

Episode Question: "Is the ATR2100 microphone overrated for Podcasting?" 
Short Answer: "The microphone is a fantastic sounding microphone for the money, and if you're planning to mostly produce your Podcast in-studio, I can 100% recommend the ATR2100 and also the AT2005 (the at2005 is a more externally robust microphone with the same internal specs as the ATR2100)."

Josh brings up a few issues he has with both the ATR2100 and AT2005:
• The USB socket on on both models is a little fragile for use outside of the studio or in handheld situations. 
• The monitoring/headphone volume dial on the ATR2100/AT2005 is rubbish! 
• The handling noise of the ATR2100 is not up to industry standards (Josh considers the SM58 as the everyman's ind. std. for a handheld microphones).

Thought Technology Takeaway: "Always consider the reasons why a particular podcasting "GURU" thinks a certain way about Podcasting - it's rarely because it's the best thing for you and your show!"

Ep. 1: "Welcome to the Podcasters' Survival Guide - Complete Protection from the Podcasting Gurus."

What the FRAK is the The Podcasters' Survival Guide? ..you might be asking.
Well, in this inaugural episode of the show your host (and resident anti-Guru) Josh Liston lays it all out.

In short, TPSguide is both a Q&A show for content focussed Podcasters, but it's also a reaction to most of the marketeers, coaches, consultants and former-radio "experts" who are trying to extract as much money from Podcasters as they can, as quickly as they can.

Remember: "The only thing the Zombie of a Podcasting Consultant wants more than your brains, is the money in your wallet.."
