Funny and informative; I'm looking for work and have been guilty of some of this 'sincere hyperbole,' where I believe (and presented myself as if) I can do everything while the person just wanted me to do the job.

I think your subject matter influences your release schedule. Two podcasts that I enjoy greatly (Caustic Soda and The Art Of Wrestling) are released on Monday and Thursday, respectively. The first is a roundtable discussion about unusual scientific and historical facts that are deemed "caustic." The latter is a interview-show that details the ins and outs of the american institution of professional wrestling (nerdy, I know.) 

 

I think releasing a show that deals with shocking, almost unbelievable subject matter is a great way to jump a Monday's commute. And due to the nature of the AoW (with the major wrestling programs being broadcast on Monday and Friday) it might overload the target audience to release the show on a Friday.

 

Ultimately, I release my show on a Friday because of its content. It's music based, perfect for a Friday/Saturday. It fits the 'mood' of the day. If I were talking science or headlocks, I would aim for middle or start of the week, though.

About a year ago, a friend had me contact @jonbuscall about what microphone I should get. Being that I was on a budget and the nature of the show, I got the Blue Snowball. It was about 60USD and has been a good investment for starting out. I did get an inexpensive pop filter for it, so it would be a 75 dollar investment. The Snowball functions both as a mono and omni directional mic, so if you wanted to capture either yourself speaking or a conversation between people, the BLUE Snowball is capable of doing both. 

 

I'm still USB bound for the moment. If I were to upgrade, I would definitely consider @mcphillips 's suggestion of the Audio Technica for the price.

@bdorman264 Early Onset Indiscerniblia. Sorry. With treatment, we can prolong your ability to recognize the online from the non-online, the "real" world. But the condition is often fatal. My condolences.

Thanks to @jennwhinnem for the creative spark. It's not often I get to break out my medical scrubs and clinical equipment but I am grateful for this chance to be your Doctor of the day.
