Recording Phone Calls with Skype

Posted by Maximum Fun on 7th January 2008

One of the most common questions I get from aspiring (and current) podcasters is how I record my phone interviews. I use a digital telephone hybrid called a Telos One. That answer usually disappoints folks who are hoping I’ll offer an answer that costs less than the six or seven hundred dollars they have to pay for the Telos. Isn’t there a decent way to record using Skype?

Paul Figgiani and Doug Kaye to the rescue. Paul is the chief engineer at the Conversations Network, and Doug’s his boss. I’ve referred many folks to Paul’s superb Podcast Rigs over the years, and he’s not only a great engineer, he has a seemingly endless supply of good will and willingness to help those of us who are awful engineers. Now, Paul and Doug have put together a clear and concise guide to recording interviews using Skype. It’s a huge service to the podcast community, and thanks to these guys for doing it!

Now, if you only come here for the comedy, we’ll be back to that shortly :).
