Socks you say? Well ya. Don’t give lame socks for the holidays – give SmartWool socks.
Heil PL-2T Boom Arm
Do they already have a microphone, but it’s sitting on their desk? Get them the Heil PL-2T Boom Arm. This will make it much easier to get the mic in the right position and makes it much more fun to record!
Shure SM7B Dynamic Microphone
The Shure SM7B Microphone is a broadcaster’s favorite. If you want to get the best, this is it.
Cloudmics Cloudlifter CL-1
It adds gain (additional volume) which makes the sound quality so much better. Highly recommended.
Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 (2nd Gen) USB Audio Interface
You’ll use the Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 USB Audio Interface to connect an XLR microphone (like the Shure SM7B above). It hasn’t excellent sound quality and will take podcast (and even instrument) recordings to the next level.
Adobe Audition is the best recording and editing software for podcasting. If you get it from Amazon they send you a serial number that you can share as a gift.
On Air Sign
Give your podcaster a way to tell people they are recording so you won’t disturb them with this On Air Door Hanger.
Zoom H4N Pro Portable Digital Recorder
You can use the Zoom H4N Pro either on the road or at home. This little guy is so versatile that it would be a great gift for a podcaster of any level.
Panasonic Lumix G85 4K Camera
Some people like to do video podcasts or create video as a way to help promote. The Panasonic Lumix G85 is an excellent mirrorless 4K camera that offers a ton for its price point. The touchscreen articulates and rotates, it has Wi-Fi, and takes great video and stills.
