You don’t need to spend much to start a podcast.
Before I started my podcasts I did lots of research. Lots of web search, read blogs and watched heaps of videos.
Unfortunately, the only thing that I achieved was to get more and more confused.
In the end, I chose the most simple. most affordable and easiest setups.
It has worked for me and I have now done hundreds and hundreds of interviews using these setups.
In this page, I show you what I use and where to buy them. Please note I have affiliate links listed for some of the products I really like.
