This one goes to 11! This first episode of Season 11 covers a bit of gear talk (including the new Shure Sm7dB) and then dives into the absolute nightmare that is YouTube's Invalid Traffic issue.

• Daniel Batal's awesome Twitter post:

•This video does an incredible job of explaining the YouTube advertiser issue which I believe is connected to Invalid Traffic:

This article explains the issue with YouTube advertisers claiming to be misled. Interestingly enough, it appeared about a month before the recent surge of channels being struck with "invalid traffic." 

🎙This week's microphone:
Shure SM7dB: https://geni.us/sm7db (Amazon)

The SM7B was running through the Rodecaster Pro II using a preset that I created after following the instructions in this video from Brodie Brazil and Home Studio Pro: https://youtu.be/U4hVGtdo5MYI
