What I’m using for the podcast interviews:

SM7B Vocal Dynamic Microphone, Cardioid

  • Flat, wide-range frequency response for exceptionally clean and natural reproduction of both music and speech. Bass rolloff and mid-range emphasis (presence boost) controls with graphic display of response setting.
  • Improved rejection of electromagnetic hum, optimized for shielding against broadband interference emitted by computer monitors. Highly effective pop filter eliminates need for any add-on protection against explosive breath sounds, even for close-up vocals.
  • Now shipping with the A7WS detachable windscreen, designed to reduce plosive sounds and gives a warmer tone for close-talk vocals. Yoke mounting with captive stand nut for easy mounting and dismounting provides precise control of microphone position.
  • Classic cardioid polar pattern, uniform with frequency and symmetrical about axis, to provide maximum rejection and minimum coloration of off-axis sound. Rugged construction and excellent cartridge protection for outstanding reliability.
  • Includes foam windscreen, close-talk windscreen, and locking yoke mount.
