Dropping a mic – and picking up another

In the middle of our most recent podcast we had a major technical failure.

The microphone Katherine, Lucy, and I have used for the first 32 podcasts finally gave up the ghost.  To be fair, it had broken a couple of times before, and I had apply liberal amounts of glue to piece it back together.  This time, though, half of the audio tracks Lucy and I recorded had too much static to be usable.

So, we said goodbye to Computer Associates, and hello to Tonor.

This is a Tonor 3.5mm Cardoid Condensor Microphone.  We recorded all of the tracks for Episode 33 with the Tonor, and we think it sounds at least as good.  Let us know what you think!
