I have a question about possibly being on the podcast. You always refer to having the proper audio equipment to record. Do you have any suggestions? I do notice that the audio quality of Alohomora is quite good, but not all podcasts can say the same. Is a set of USB headphone with a microphone sufficient, or do you recommend more sophisticated equipment?
I would recommend giving what you have a shot. Certainly we aren't asking you to purchase or even rent anything outlandish! We have good equipment because we have to. We do, though, ask that fans at least be able to eliminate background noise and not to use the laptop internal mic, should you have a laptop. Our editors are amazing and can make even the worst sounding microphone sound pretty good! Background noise, as I mentioned, is key. A quiet, well padded room (meaning, don't sit in an empty, echoy room) is best. Try putting pillows around yourself on your desk if the room you're recording in doesn't have curtains or linens. Good luck! Can't wait to hear what you have to say!
