Here’s a list of everything that goes into what you see from me on all my social platforms! There’s been a ton of trial n error throughout this journey but this is where I’m currently at with all of the products and video editing software I use! Below you’ll find everything from software to products I use both to record video content, edit videos, and even my podcast. I do get a bit of commission if you decide to purchase any of the physical products after clicking the link provided so I greatly appreciate it if you do! As always Contact Me if you have any questions!
CONTENT CREATION EQUIPMENT
Just recently upgraded my camera game to the Panasonic GH5 shown below. Before that I was mainly rocking the Canon m50 w/ the viltrox speed booster so I could use EF lenses on the m50. The Sony RX camera has been great for my slow motion content as it allows for shooting in a 960 FPS!
This has been a big one for me because I really do believe the audio is the most crucial piece towards attracting viewers with your content. This is really one of those things that comes down to you get what you pay for.. and as I’ve gotten a bit more advanced in my content creation I’ve found it necessary to go with the Sennheiser Wireless System.
Lens + Attachments
For the new Panasonic GH5 I mostly use the 12-35 lens but I’ll also use my Canon EF lenses by throwing on the metabones speed booster attachment which allows me to mount EF lenses to the Panasonic camera so I don’t have to buy a whole new set of lenses for the new camera.
I’ll use this iPad for a lot of video stuff as well. The app Coaches Eye + Hudl allow for quick video analysis if I’m not near my computer. To save $40 on Coaches Eye Subscription click HERE. I just recently upgraded to the Apple Pencil 2nd generation and to be very honest I think it’s a waste of money for the stuff that I do on my iPad.
Storage + Memory
When you’re a content machine like me you gotta have a lot of storage space.. I have so many 1 TB hard drives but recently I started getting the 4 + 5 TB ones listed below. Also now that I’m doing a lot of recording in 4K I’m having to use a higher memory SD card that you’ll see below.
This has been one of the main trial n error things. Started with just regular iMovie on a MacBook and then stepped up to the big leagues using Adobe Premiere.
My favorite software as of right now is ScreenFlow which lets me record my screen and talk over. I use this software for basically everything right now. Here’s a preview of what this software looks like. Jacob deGrom + Luke Weaver – Forward Momentum Breakdown.
If I’m in need of a quick Video Analysis I’ll turn to the iPad and use Coaches Eye which will allow me to send directly to my client via text. Here’s a video preview of a breakdown I did on Coaches Eye. Gerrit Cole + Jacob deGrom – Effortless Velocity. Be sure to click the link above to save $40 on your Coaches Eye Subscription.
For my IG posts like this one I’ll use KeyNote that comes free to those with a Mac.
PODCAST EQUIPMENT + SOFTWARE
First n foremost the way I go about recording the interviews is thru Skype or FaceTime and I use ecamm call recorder. It was a one time fee. Here’s the website. https://www.ecamm.com
Then I use GarageBand to edit the entire podcast up and include pre rolls n post rolls.
So I record some podcasts just via Skype like mentioned above and then some I record in person which obviously needs a different set of equipment so I’ll mention that below.
I’ve finally done it.. Made it to the big leagues with my Podcast equipment by purchasing the Shure SM7B Mic… same one that Rogan uses. It was a confusing process at first due to the different input cord from the other mics that I’ve used in the past.
Using an external webcam makes the world of difference when I’m conducting my Analysis via my iMac. The picture quality comes out great and way better than using the built in camera.
Other Items Used
The Zoom PodTrak P4 is a very impressive piece of equipment that allows for recording multiple people on a track as well as having people be able to phone in.
Here’s a list of some other things I’ve used to help with the portable podcast recording.

Honestly it’s going to be real confusing at first but once you get it man it’s simple… I literally youtube videos and teach myself. Here’s my favorite video that explains my setup n system – https://youtu.be/xhesskgmIsQ
