Welcome to CHEAP, our brand-new series about things that are good, but most of all, cheap. CHEAP!

You know how easy it is to start a podcast? Quite. And you know how easy it is now you can get the Blue Yeti Nano USB mic for only $79.99 (its lowest ever price)? Very.

When we reviewed this fancy device, we referred to it as “perfect for rookie podcasters and streamers” – and that was at its full $100 cost. If you’re looking to start your own show or do some amateur recording, now’s the time to pick up the mic.

Personally, I’m a huge fan of Blue’s microphone range. When I first started podcasting, I used the Blue Snowball and found it to be a wonderful starter’s bit of hardware. Then, about a year after that, I upgraded to the classic Blue Yeti. This delivered improved sound and capabilities – and I’ve still got a lot of love for it.

Basically, the Yeti Nano is just a smaller version of that classic mic. The company has pumped almost all the features of the older Yeti into a small package. And, well, it’s great. It outputs a clear, crisp recording and looks stylish.

We could delve deeper into specs, but that doesn’t matter too much. Instead, what makes the Yeti Nano so special is how easy it is to use. You plug it into a USB slot on your computer, open up recording software (like the wonderful Audacity), and… that’s it. Using the Yeti Nano is that simple.

So, if you want to start a podcast or get into streaming, the Yeti Nano is a great bet. But now it’s 20 percent off and only $79.99? You’d be silly not to buy one.
