In today's high-pressured, convergent, synergised multimedia newsroom type thing, getting the quotes you need involves much more than just turning up with a notepad and pen. As print journalists are dragged kicking and screaming into this crazy new online podcasting age, the distinction between print, online and broadcast is becoming increasingly blurred. So here's a trusty piece of gear designed to help you while you're out and about in your new role of reporter turned broadcaster. It does vox-pops by day, karaoke by night, and can make even the least enthusiastic, such as Colin Crummy, feel like a proper roving reporter. Sounds good?
