bigger in radio these days than sports?
Pod is a talent mic and headphone “mini console,” suitable for
covering games but also useful in the studio. It is similar to the
company’s Talent Pod but adds Talkback and Remote Mic Control.
duplex Talkback (intercom) function allows communication with a
producer or engineer. Pressing the Talkback button mutes mic audio
from air and sends it to an isolated Talkback (off-air) output. Check

Pod gives an announcer control of headphone audio, and lets the
announcer create a custom mix of Local and Return (IFB) audio.
Several can be used so that each announcer can control his or her mic
and headphone audio mix. The units link via Cat-5 cables.
