“"...G-get this fuckin mic out of my fa-[cans.wav]”—Ghost
Ghost has typically used a microphone that produces sound roughly the same throughout the history of his broadcast. Though, on a few occasions, he used different microphones that caused his voice to sound slightly different than his listeners were used to. Sometimes the quality of the audio was due to the amount of compression by BlogTalkRadio or Paltalk.
While Ghost had experienced technical difficulties in the past, those were usually the result of his drunken and/or enraged behavior, such as throwing his microphone around or cans.wav.
During early-mid 2012, his microphone kept on dying, and eventually by the 4/20 episode in 2012, he tested his then-new microphone. After some complaints, he stuck with this backup microphone until Episode 226, when he eventually stopped broadcasting until 2016.
Upon his return to True Capitalist Radio in 2016, Ghost struggled with frequent technical difficulties. Ghost claimed these were the result of a faulty mic, sometimes claiming that anti-Trump ads were being played on his broadcast during breaks, occasionally playing the Girl from Ipanema while attempting to fix the situation.
After Templeton chewed through the power cable of his microphone in Episode 228, Ghost resorted to using his smartphone for every show up until Episode 238, after it was repaired by an electronics specialist at great expense.
According to various Inner Circle members, Ghost apparently purchased a new microphone in preparation for his July 4th comeback. However, since this comeback was cancelled and the show put on hold indefinitely, this mic will likely only be put to use in the Inner Circle voice chat.
