Stephen Jondrew and Stargate Pioneer host a weekly podcast dedicated for the Hobby Podcaster with tips and tricks on how to get started, sound great, have fun and not break the bank. Each week they talk about a podcasting topic in depth within an arc (like how to start a podcast, podcast gear for the hobby podcaster, and tips on different types of presenting-announcing-hosting) and then run down a current news item of importance to podcasting. They also run down any feedback and offer advice on how to make your hobby podcasting time better, easier and more fun.

It's time, it's finally here. If you've been on the edge of your seat like the one and only Stargate Pioneer, waiting to find out the feedback in Stephen's Mic Shootout Blind Test - well you're in luck. In this episode Stephen takes you through each microphone reveal, sharing information on the feedback of the listeners, as well as SP's feedback and guesses. How many mics did SP get right? You'll have to listen to find out.

In this week's Better Podcasting Download, we discuss the newly announced Logitech C922 Webcam and what it means for podcasters, including those who own the Logitech C920 already.
