Seriously, think about it.
Most people listening to this podcast didn't grow up with the ability to video conference with a person across the globe.
Now, we do it almost daily.
For podcasters, Skype has become a great asset, enabling us to connect with experts around the world for interviews and conversations, all with the click of a couple of buttons.
Maybe you're new to podcasting and don't know how to record a call using Skype.
Maybe you're an old-timer who is considering a switch to a better option.
In this episode I'm going to walk through some of the 3rd party applications that enable you to record Skype - both audio and video - and provide links to all of those resources so you can check them out and make up your own mind.
First, understand that when I say "third party" applications, I mean software programs that are not developed or distributed by the folks at Skype. These software packages come from other folks who have found a way to connect to Skype and record what is going on through it.
Here's my list:
