Reporter's Notebook

The art and science of the interview

Gear

The gear I use and will use to do these interviews isn’t reliant on a location or a power supply to give good quality.  There is lots of top of the line portable equipment with the specs to rival anything you can get in a studio.  One piece in particular is the Yeti Pro from Blue Microphones.  For one, it’s gorgeous.  It harkens back to Radio Days from the 1930’s and 1940’s.  For another, it has four different audio pickup pattern settings and all of the controls, volume, mute, microphone gain and headphone preamp control are in the gadget itself.  And finally, it’s not all that expensive considering what you get.  A couple of these in a backpack, and a reasonably quiet place and you can do a terrific interview for a podcast or whatever.
