In this video I am explaining why you should double clip mic the interviewee, as often things can happen like the person accidentally touching the mic or their clothing brushing against the microphones, you v will always have proper back up audio on another channel. As you might think having a shotgun mic or a boom mic recording a 2nd channel would make it easier to save those moment, but different microphones will always sound different and switching between the two can be very noticeable, while using two identical microphones you can seamlessly switch while nobody would even hear a difference.
