Interview Recording for Podcasts – Part 1 – Software February 27, 2007Posted by Jeff in Podcast Software, Podcasting.
Found your blog the other day and really enjoying it! My wife and I are getting ready to start a podcast and I had a quick question for you…We are wanting to do phone interviews with 2-4 people at a time for some of our podcasts and I was hoping you had some suggestions on a low cost (or free!) way of doing that. I found a site called XXX which looks like would work but didn’t know if you had a better way.
Thanks for your help!
John asks a good question, but also mentions a site that does this sort of thing for you. I tend to shy away from going with a hosting company or signing up with a web site for a certain feature. I don’t want to be dependant on them and I certainly don’t want the feature or service to go away and me to be stuck. So, I like to do things myself.
One service that I know won’t be going away anytime soon is Skype. My best advice for recording podcast interviews on the cheap is to sign up with Skype and record your calls. Skype doesn’t, but may in the future, provide recording capabilities… but you can easily record your calls using third-party plugins, applications, or hardware. The call audio could them be converted to an audio file that you could use in your normal podcast software.
