Podcasting: The Gear We Use

Since 2005 I’ve been podcasting my thoughts to the world.  It started with The Coolness Roundup that I co-hosted with Charlie White, and has since grown to include seven weekly shows on the Major Spoilers Podcast Network.  Over the years, the gear that I use to record podcasts has changed, but for the last four years, I’ve settled on a couple of different setups for the various shows I produced.

I’ve compiled a list of essential gear for those interested in knowing what we use, as well as links to purchase that gear directly from Amazon.com.  You can find that list  at Major Spoilers.

CINTIQ 24HD Touch from Wacom

While I don’t have the artistic skills that many have, I can’t help but want a Cintiq 24HD Touch for nothing more than working in Adobe After Effects (masking), and LightWave 3D (modeling).

I’ve used Wacom tablets for years, but it has always been a weird feeling trying to draw or mask while not looking at area I’m drawing on. Add in the touch aspect of the Cintiq 24HD Touch, and I think this is the solution for me.

Now I only need $3,699.00.

Anyone want to donate the funds or send me one of these?
