Interested in podcasts? Do you need something small, reliable and able to take the hardest knocks and just keep on working? Then the special "Richard Herring" signature TASCAM RH1 is for you! Although not many people have heard of it and most go for the more popular "S/Lee" model (as seen on TV) the RH1 is still worth a look. Its small size means that it will fit conveniently into any space (e.g. a cramped basement). It just keeps on going no matter what life (and Jane Root) throw at it. It has several modes, including the useful M1 and M2, the quite useful C1 and C2 and the rather useless R1 and R2. Changing between modes just takes a moment. It can pick up the slightest sound, such as a grumpy wife answering the door to a delivery man, from upto 30 feet away. The lack of a rewind button (which would enable someone to easily check whose turn it was FFS) is a small drawback, but at only £99.99 it is easily affordable. Unless the only "work" you do is given away for free and your wife fritters anything left over on going swimming all the time.
