Great presentation from Patrick Tomasso!
An IPad and the Apple Audio Recording Software Garageband are all that you need to record and produce your podcast.
Rode has a very good microphone the NT USB Mini, that you just have to plug into your IPad.
Also the possibility to choose music loops for the intro and outro is really neat!
I am personally a PC user.
But I can really see and understand how easy and professional this workflow is.
Also the software user interface looks great.
This is why many media creators pay a little bit more for a Apple product, but then get a little bit more back in terms of quality and design.
