For no reason I can pinpoint, I’ve been missing my old radio days. Got so bad, I decided it was time to start podcasting. You know, talking into a microphone like a have an actual radio-sized audience, then posting the resulting MP3 file for you to listen to.

If I really decide to do this thing, it’ll be the unholy offspring of vanity and nostalga. But, hey, who doesn’t love a baby?

NOTE: After three-plus years of blogging, a little fact just hit me. When I was doing small-market morning radio for damn near minimum wage, I had a bigger audience than I get here on the internet. And let me tell you: I’m a lazy blogger, but I was an even lazier broadcaster. Puts things in perspective, no? On the other hand, I like you people a lot more than I liked most of my neighbors in Humboldt County, CA.

Anyway, I’m looking for a good mic. Something less than a hundred bucks, yet won’t pick up all my popping P’s. An inexpensive, yet forgiving, microphone. A cheap hooker with a heart of gold I can talk dirty into without having to pay extra.

Got any advice?
