Do you use any specialized software for your job that are far more expensive than most other software—and do you find they're worth it? Did you try to find cheaper alternatives, or are you glad to pay for it even if it's pricy?
Hindenburg Journalist Pro. Used Audition for years to edit my podcast but had to move away because it was heavy and recording stopped working.
It's expensive but is by far the best DAW specific for podcasts, more than happy to pay the premium for using it.

Although most in the group are taking the software farther than I can imagine, it is the software I have been in love with as opposed to the many others I've used.
Never been a fan of anything else out there like #roamresearch
I pay for Polymail. Once Superhuman started, everything else is cheaper obviously. I'm happy with Polymail. I wish they shipped major features faster, but the software does improve fast. I also pay Fantastical and 1Password - both of them, I think, could be better. There is no good Mac Calendar app. Every 2-3 years something will come up and get bought.
I have several gmail accounts. Superhuman onboarding created a split inbox for me with a calendar ICS and I forgot how to do it. Can anyone provide the steps to do this, please?
