Podcast Gear


I thought I’d put together a list of the podcast gear that I use for The Aussie English Podcast as a few people have asked me about what I use and why.

Check out the podcast episodes here on SoundCloud or via iTunes, and go to the YouTube channel to check out the videos + audio.

For full disclosure, I’ve placed an affiliate link for each product below it that links to it on Amazon.

It doesn’t cost you anything extra, but if you make a purchase Aussie English will get a small amount of commission!

So, if you’re thinking about purchasing any of these products and you want to support The Aussie English Podcast at the same time please click one of the links below before you buy it.

Thanks guys! And if you have any questions feel free to comment below or email me at theaussieenglishpodcast[at]gmail[dot]com.
