"It costs a lot of money to look this cheap."

Dolly Parton gets it. If you want to play the game, you have to invest in yourself.

Fortunately for podcasters, it doesn't cost nearly as much to sound great. We're very fortunately to have open-source software like Audacity that can record us for free.

But you need a mic. And you need a good interface.

Right now, Focusrite has a $100 Podcast Studio that has everything you need as far as podcasting hardware—a great interface, a mic, studio headphones, and even the mic cable.

This is perfect for you, if you're doing a solo podcast or interviewing people remotely.

Two people in the same room? Try their $200 Podcast Studio, which has an even better mic and a Vocaster Two interface.

True story ... Focusrite equipment saved my interview with Dave Jr. from Megadeth. To hear that story, subscribe to the podcast.
