The Sony ECM-CS3 Lapel Mic Works Great with the Roland R-05 Recorder
In this episode, I demonstrate, from the field, just how well the Sony ECM-CS3 lapel mic works with the Roland R-05 Recorder. In fact, for this part of the episode, I'm actually riding my bicycle at relatively high speeds with little to no wind noise whatsoever. This section starts at 18 minutes and 26 seconds into the episode.

Marc Maron & The President of The United States

I was blown away when I saw a link to the article in Vanity Fair that shared the behind the scenes look into how Marc Maron prepared for his podcast interview of President Barack Obama.

I was like… What? Marc Maron got The President of The United States of America to agree to do a podcast interview? And then, when I clicked through to the article, I discovered that President Obama actually went to Marc's home and did the podcast interview in his homemade podcast studio in the garage! INCREDIBLE.

I spend the first several moments of this episode explaining why I think that this is such a huge deal. You can listen to the episode on Marc's website. You can see some photos Marc posted by clicking here.

A Question From Twitter

Lacey asked me the question embedded above on Twitter this morning. I spent some time answering her question starting at 43 minutes and 45 seconds into the episode.

In answering her, I did mention that you could hook up an ATR-2100 microphone directly to a Roland R-05 Recorder using a Hosa XVM-105F cable. However, I did mention that if her Audio Technica microphone was a condenser microphone, this would not work.

Also, I mentioned that if she is just starting out and wants to record Skype interviews, she doesn't need a Roland Recorder. Instead, she should just plug her Audio Technica into the computer and use a program designed to record Skype audio to record the interviews. For Windows users, I recommend PAMELA and for Mac users, I recommend CALL RECORDER.

Upcoming Event Schedule
One of my favorite things about traveling to, and speaking at conferences, is meeting members of my community. I always make it a point to host a community meetup wherever I travel.

Below is a list of events that you might be interested in. If you can make it to any of these events, I'd love to have the opportunity to meet you. If you are not able to attend the event, but are in that area, I'd still love for you to come to the personal community meetup that I will host in that town.
