Goodness me!
Just switch mid-stream.
It'll be a nice surprise for your listeners.

I agree. (Maybe even alternate them chapter by chapter!

Based on Kristin's recommendation I went out and purchased a Snowball for myself.

Works great and I'm very happy with the sound... plus it looks keen!

Doesn't it though. :D

One note for women on the snowball- I find I sound better on the omni setting (setting 3). If I lower my voice on setting one it sounds ok but if I speak higher not so much. My husband sounds great on setting one, so I'm thinking it does a bit better for lower voices.

So? Is it time for you to write a review on your snow ball experience? Written somewhere? Or would you like to throw something together for the next podcast?
