Mobile podcast cart

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2005
I'm becoming more comfortable with the gear that I will be using for my podcasts. Two weeks ago, I put together a mobile podcast rig for my think station. It's basically a small oak cart on wheels with my Skype PC, mixer, headphone amp, and my digital audio transfer device. Below, I store cables, microphones and the headphones that my guest and I will use during the podcast.

I had a few opportunities to test this rig last week. We actually recorded several podcasts, however, I plan to hold onto some of them until I launch the new eProductivity.NET web site. (When will that happen? Real soon now.)

My current project is to streamline the process and technology that I will include in my mobile podcast kit so that I can capture, record, and produce from anywhere.  I'm still working out the settings for capture and encoding as well as the virtual audio circuits needed to make this happen in a compact and reliable way. I will continue to post the results of these experiments along the way. A big thank you to those of you, who have already responded with feedback.

As for the podcasts, I've already accumulated a list of people that I would like to interview, and I'm working on a format that will allow me to put these out quickly. It's been a lot of fun and I have met some wonderful people along the way.

If you know of someone you would like me to interview let me know.

can you describe in detail the set up you are using now. How do you get interviews for your podcasts over the phone? That's the hardest thing for me. I need a professional sounding setup to get the interviews over skype to sound like we are in the same room. Is that possible?
