Podcast Guest Equipment Guide

When it comes to being an excellent podcast guest, you need to make sure that you have the right podcasting equipment. With the right equipment you’ll instantly become more professional and sound better during the interview. What follows below is all the equipment you need to become an excellent guest today!

Podcast Mics

The first and most important item you need to have to be a successful guest is a podcast mic.

I recommend using either Blue Yeti or Audio-Technica AT2020


When you’re doing an interview, you’ll want to make sure there is no background noise. In order to ensure that there is no background noise, you’ll need a pair of headphones.

I recommend using either Audio-Technica ATH-M50x or Bose QuietComfort 35 II

Pop Filter

If you notice that you pop some of your letters when you speak, a pop filter is what you need! A pop filter can be as cheap as $7 on Amazon.

For your pop filter, I recommend the Dragonpad Pop Filter

Microphone Arm

While having a podcast mic, headphones, and a pop filter are essential to being a podcast guest, I’d like to discuss some additional items you can purchase as a guest. They aren’t necessary, but will allow you to stand out.

The first addition you can make is getting a microphone arm. A microphone arm allows you to mount your mic to a desk or table.

I recommend the InnoGear Heavy Duty Microphone Stand

Podcast Flag

With your microphone arm, you can add a podcast flag to better represent your brand. A podcast flag allows you to put your company’s logo on your microphone. A podcast flag can be purchased for as little as $47.

I recommend using Impact PBS

It should also be noted that as podcast guest, you will need a laptop. When an interview is done over the phone, you won’t have the best quality. And quality is what is going to allow you to stand out as a podcast guest.

Starting your journey as a podcast guest starts with ensuring you have the right equipment!
