The first time I  met another podcaster, the first thing we talked about was what podcasting gear each other was using. So I figured it would be great to have a page to not only let people know what we are currently using, but what gear we would like to get as well. This page will update and change as we progress thru this amazing journey.

Current Setup

This is our current setup as of September 2017. These items may vary depending on how often we update this section. If a piece of gear was upgraded we will provide a link to the old gear we used. Also, the reason why we switched or upgraded will also be included as well.
