What microphones does Andrew recommend?

There are 3 ways to go:

#1 cheap: use the mic that's built into your computer. Unless you're on a laptop with a heavy fan, it'll be fine. This is what I recommend most of my interviewees use.

#2 good: I like the Blue Yeti because you can focus on the speaker and reduce outside noise.

#3 great: I've used the Rode Podcaster with a boom arm for years because it doesn't pick up the noise outside my office door and I can position it right where I want it. (I used to use it with a laptop that had a very loud fan, and the mic didn't pick up any of the noise because the boom arm let me position it away from the fan.)
