“All the gear that we like is a force multiplier. It’s something that affects you either all day, or it makes you more effective all day. That’s gear worth investing in.” – Chris Graham

“The entire episode, we really didn’t mention specific gear very often. In most cases, the specifics don’t matter. The difference between an RE20 and an SM7B is based on your taste. We can’t be the ones to tell you which one to choose.” – Brian Hood
