What hardware/software do you use?
We record using a sE Electronics V7 microphone into a Rodecaster.
After recording, the show is edited together either in Reaper or Premiere Pro (if audio-only or video).
Other software used in the production process include iZotope RX, Ozone, Nectar, After Effects, Photoshop, Capture One Pro, Illustrator, Affinity Designer, Affinity Photo.
What research materials do you use?
Unfortunately, there’s not a one-size-fits-all answer to this. For each episode, there’s an array of books, media and online sources that we use.
You can find links to a lot of these on episode pages, but that’s not all of them. Those are typically only the public, online resources.
It doesn’t include things from sites behind a paywall like Ancestry.com or Newspapers.com. It also doesn’t include physical resources like books, magazines or other resources that can’t be found digitally. While we try to include links to some of those physical resources through retailers like Amazon, quite honestly they don’t all make it into the show because it’d take a really long time to find links to each of those sources. We’d rather spend that time working on the episode.
If you have any questions about particular resources or episodes, please feel free to reach out.
