About this project
My name is Jason Portizo and I'm the owner/operator of Ugly Door Studio in Toms River, NJ. We see a lot of local talent pass through our doors every day and I feel it's my responsibility to let everyone in the world know about how awesome the music around here is. I was just recently turned on to the world of podcasting and how powerful a tool it can be to reach an audience and thought "man...this is just what this area needs". We're pretty well equipped here in the studio for rehearsal and recording but we could use a few more items that are specific to broadcasting -- this is where you come in. My shopping list isn't long: 1 maybe 2 more broadcast microphones (Shure SM7B), some overhead booms (Heil HB-1), a table and some chairs to sit our guests comfortably and get them talking. With as little as $500 I can get the ball rolling with enough gear to make not only a comfortable studio...but a pretty well equipped one. If I exceed the goal, I'll only be able to make it better. Once I have the space established, I'll be making the space and gear available to other aspiring podcasters who are looking for a better quality recording to get their voices heard. But first I need you to help get this thing into gear...
