[...] Microphones. If you’re just starting out and not yet monetizing, you don’t have to get $400 microphones. But if you want a professional podcast that you will later monetize, the microphone matters. My mics range from $1 to $150, not including the mic that’s native to my Zoom H4. I use the dollar-store mic on an older computer, for tests now, though I did use it for many of my early podcasts. It produces a clear but very thin sound, so if you’re not up to adding effects to improve the result, start with something in the $50-100 range. [...]

Dave, I've used one while doing an episode of TWIT at Leo's. At least I remember it being the PR-40. It was definitely Heil. Sounded good. I know that Heil has "seeded" and or loaned mics to some podcasters and deservedly gained praise. They are great mics. That said, I've always been happy with my RE-20 and have yet to use a mic that has moved me to change. Of course, different types of voices will also have an effect on how well the matches the user's voice and speech characteristics.

Scott, Nice remote recording setup. The Marantz PMD670 is a solid performer. I've had a chance to use all of the Marantz digital recorders, including the new PMD620. The PMD670 has always been one I've recommended.

Couldn't agree more with the E-Voice RE20 dual windscreen rig for in-studio work. That's what we use at PodWorx. For our remote recording, we use the E-Voice RE50B which, when combined with the Marantz PMD670 makes for an outstanding "portable studio". (The RE50B looks good with the mic flag as well.) And though this is a bit off-topic, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the Edirol R-09 as a all-in-one mic recorder.
