Like any nerd, I love gear and the software that runs on them. Here is a running list of the gear that I own and use.
My primary machine is a 2020 13” M1 MacBook Air. When I’m at a proper desk, I have it hooked up to an external monitor, a Magic Keyboard, and a Magic Mouse. I also have an M1 iPad Air that I use as a secondary primary computing device.
For my mobile device, I have an iPhone 14 Pro on T-Mobile. I carry around Airpods Pro. For long plane trips or if I want a more immersive experience, I use my Airpods Max in White. I also wear a Nike Apple Watch Series 6, 44mm in Aluminum. My backpack is from Patagonia. I got it for my birthday and it’s awesome.
I’ve always been interested in photography. My first camera was a Canon Powershot A40. Nowadays, I shoot with a Canon 70D (link goes to updated 80D). I got it as a videographer kit so it came with a lens and Rode mic. I have two tripods, a Slik Sprint Pro and a small handheld one by Manfrotto.
I cohosted a podcast that ran from 2017–2018. In our short run, I collected some gear that I used to record the show.
To record a podcast you obviously need a microphone. I use a Blue Yeti Microphone. To hear your co-host or guest you are interviewing, you need to hear them, and most importantly, your own voice. I use Beats Solo 3 to do this. To convert the audio to a digital signal, I use a Zoom H4n recorder.
On the Mac and iOS, I use a collection of 1st party and 3rd party apps to get stuff done.
