Choosing a podcast microphone in 2020 is difficult to say the least.

Podcasting equipment has evolved dramatically, causing intense competition amongst manufacturers.

In my opinion, the incremental difference in sound performance between similarly priced microphones can be hard to decipher. Therefore, the thought process to spend tons of money on equipment skews towards unnecessary (especially after getting past basic entry level mics such as the ATR-2100x).
