Anyone here do a podcast?

I'm looking for an audio mixer, microphone stand, and possibly a pop filter, so I can improve my webshow. The mixer has to be PC audio compatible, as we use Skype, iTunes and VLC as mediums for our show.

Looking to spend less than $200.

Any help finding quality components without burning my wallet would be appreciated.

Ok, so I do Podcasts.

Best solutions used out there are as follows from what I have read and experienced, for your price point.

Audacity - FREE, does all that you need, and there are free plug-ins to make it do more.
Microphone - Yeti best there is for the money, you can buy the Pro if you really want to spend more money. Can be had for about $125 (http://www.bluemic.com/yeti/)
Pop Filter - https://bluemic.ebuynow.com/us/ebuyn...41/category/34

There are some internet how to's on mounting the Pop Filter. It comes with a generic mount, but if you drill the back of the Yeti, and mount on the bracket, it is perfect!

Thanks Greg. I actually have a console as well... somewhere around here. Would love you to learn Audacity... I need you to teach me!

My mixer isn't for sale. You can get a Behringer cheap at Guitar Center or Sam Ash. They're simple, quality and work well.

I'll have time to do more in 3 weeks when we get back home.
