My Gear

  Some of you might know that I own and operate a recording studio.  It makes the recording process easier for me.  When I started recording the podcast, I was met with a few technical challenges.  now that the process is locked down, I thought it might be fun to give you all a tour of the various set ups I use to record my podcasts with.

The Set Ups

I have three basic set ups that I use for three separate tasks.  The set ups are as follows:

Main Studio

My main Studio is currently set up in a barn on my parents property.  For more information about the studio, you can go to www.insightrecorders.com

The Basement

This is where I do most of my work on the podcast.  I record online interviews, I edit and prepare the recordings for release every Monday

Travelling

When I need to drive to an interview, I try to take the least amount of gear as possible.  Everything needs to set up fast and efficiently.
