One of the best things about events like Cyber Monday is how it can inspire you to start up hobbies or to create a personal project. When it comes to podcasting, there are some fantastic deals that can help you create your own.
As a co-host of The iMore Show, it's important to me to have certain accessories to record with — a microphone is a must to record my voice in the best quality for example. Yet some headphones can also help, so you can focus in on the show's topics and what the guests are talking about.
With this in mind, I've rounded up some essential accessories that I recommend to help record a podcast.
Where to find the best Mac Cyber Monday deals
- Amazon — Save on MacBook Air and Pro models
- Best Buy — $250 off multiple Macs and more
- Walmart — New and refurbished Macs reduced
MacBook Air M1 |
$999 $749 at Amazon
While not the newest MacBook on the block, it’s going to be powerful enough for most people, especially for podcasts. This is the new lowest price for the MacBook Air, although you're going to need to tick the little 'coupon' button to get it.
Anker USB-C 11-in-1 dock |
$74.99 $47.58 at Amazon
At 37% off for Cyber Monday, this dock is excellent at extending a Mac or an iPad to record a podcast. From plugging in a microphone to connecting an SSD drive to save my side of the audio into a file, it's perfect for those just-in-case scenarios.
