Lewis Howes has seen it all because he’s been through it all: learning-challenged from a young age; an aspiring arena football star until sidelined by a career-ending injury; a New York Times bestselling author (The School of Greatness: A Real-World Guide to Living Bigger, Loving Deeper, and Leaving a Legacy and The Mask of Masculinity: How Men Can Embrace Vulnerability, Create Strong Relationships, and Live to Their Fullest Lives); the proprietor of a multi-million-dollar online media company; and ultimately an in-demand motivational speaker and advisor to billion-dollar brands.
Howes has also heard it all, thanks to the Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 interface that’s become the linchpin of his successful podcast, School of Greatness.
Howes has hosted a wide range of authors, business leaders, actors, musicians, entrepreneurs, spoken-word artists and nutritionists, including Robert Greene, Tim Ferriss, Timothy Sykes, Katrín Davíðsdóttir and Danica Patrick. And through it all, a key element of Howes’ technical setup is the Scarlett 2i2 interface from Focusrite.
Howes says he discovered the Scarlett 2i2 after hearing about it from fellow top podcasters. “I heard about it about seven years ago from another podcaster who was using it and said it was great,” he recalls. “I’ve been using it ever since.”
Howes, who recently upgraded his unit to a Scarlett 3rd Gen version, says the Scarlett 2i2 is the perfect solution for podcasters who need to get down to business and not slowed by technology. “I love how easy it is to use, simple to set up, and the high sound quality,” he says. “I just plug it into my computer and send the file to my editor. Simple to use, fast, always reliable. You can’t ask for more.”
