The headset solution

If you've listened to my podcasts, you know that I've been wrestling with the pops and creaks that occur when I move my head. Oh, my head is fine... but my Logitech headset isn't. The mic is super-sensitive.

This past week, researching microphones, I read that others have had similar problems. That got my brain working: If it's not a defective mic, maybe there's a solution!

This morning, I figured it out. I hot glued the microphone in place. We're talking lots & lots of hot glue. And... it worked!

Oh, I've ordered a better quality microphone so that my podcasts won't sound quite so much like I'm talking down a paper towel tube or something. But, until the new mic arrives, I can keep using the Logitech headset; it's working vastly better, now. In fact, I recorded three weeks' worth of ghost-related podcasts this morning, with minimal editing. Life is good!
