Best podcasting equipment in terms of price, ease of use, and quality. You would need a lot of separate equipment and more money to achieve what this USB mic does. If you are thinking of taking it anywhere it could not be easier, you just plug it to any computer via the USB port. For completeness you just need a headphone and a pop filter. In addition Adorama is a great company to do business with. When I first ordered with them I was hesitant. As I found out they fully and quickly responded with a replacement when one of the products I ordered had a factory defect.
