Advice on recording tomorrow's podcast?

Friday, October 02, 2009 by Dave Winer.

A picture named sawyer.gifTomorrow we're doing a live Rebooting The News podcast at the SF Hilton. It's going to present an interesting challenge because it will be in a room with a number of people talking, and without spending a lot of money on new equipment, I have to get them all on the recording with a single mike. Permalink to this paragraph

Which leads to this: omnidirectional microphonePermalink to this paragraph

I'd like to have the room set up as a big conference room with seats around a table, and a single microphone in the middle of the table. Permalink to this paragraph

There will be no time for sound checks, it has to work the first time. Permalink to this paragraph

Whatever I buy has to be here by tomorrow mid-day. If it's not here, we'll have to go on without it. Permalink to this paragraph

It would also be nice to webcast it through BlogTalkRadio and perhaps Ustream or similar services. Permalink to this paragraph

One possibility, admittely low-tech, is to have everyone call in on their cell phones! A picture named sidesmiley.gif Permalink to this paragraph

Any advice people have would be quite welcome.  Permalink to this paragraph
