Podcasting Workflow

Hello all,

I’m starting a weekly series of interviews for a podcast. I’m trying to figure out a proper workflow and good hardware.


  • Good audio quality
  • Ease of use
  • Must allow for portability if needed
  • Must have options for up to 3 or 4 inputs
  • be Mac friendly solution
  • be iOS friendly solution

Thank you!

I am using a TASCAM US-2x2 XLR to USB interface with an Audio Technical ATR2100 mic.
The nice thing about the ATR2100 is that it supports XLR and USB, so you can use it into your USB interface at home for better audio control, but go straight USB if you need to take it out mobile.
I know the TASCAM works with iOS, you just have to use external power or go through a powered hub instead of directly into the device.

The model of TASCAM I am using only supports 2 inputs, as the name implies, but there is a 4 input version as well.

While it is a little out of date, Marco has a great write up here: https://marco.org/podcasting-microphones
This hardware does not change a lot so the reviews are still pretty valid.

I also have the standard Blue Yeti, which is also a great mic but picks up a lot more room noise than the ATR.

I cannot help much with the software and workflow because I am using my setup for screen casts. You might give Dan Benjamin’s Podcast Method podcast a listen: http://5by5.tv/podcastmethod
