Dave, Jeff and Chuck all use Plexicam which is a wonderful clear plexi webcam holder that mounts on your laptop or monitor. Dave demonstrates 2 models: the Plexicam mini with Light kit and Plexicam Pro+. It also has a phone holder which Dave uses with the podcast as a webcam. It really does a great job keeping you eye level on the screen and still see through. There is a companion YouTube short on this segment on our YouTube channel.
