I thought it would be helpful to create a resource page that you can use to find software, products and camera gear that gets mentioned in the interviews rather than go hunting through episodes to find what you heard mentioned. I’ll keep adding to it as I learn more from interviewees and you’ll notice that in the future I will reference this page quite often in the podcast. You can bookmark the page for future reference.
