EP99: The Podcast Accounting Show

Behind the scenes of the Mike Murphy Unplugged Finacials
How much it cost to start this podcast?
How much it cost to maintain this podcast week after week?


I buy the best quality that I can afford. I do not look for the most expensive things I can afford, I try to buy things that are simple, have good reputation and just work. I do not like a lot of bells and whistles on gear or gadgets, I want the basics but I want them to be good and just work.
