Help! anyone! I need Podcast help!

Postby Lamorenalotiene » Thu Jan 24, 2008 1:33 pm

Hello:

Does anyone out here know how in the WORLD i could possibly do a podcast interview when the other person I want to interview is in a different state? Are there any devices or websites that would allow me to do this??? Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

Thanks!

Your question is a good example of how much being a Elite member would help you. On the 22nd the whole hour of Lynn Terry's weekly seminar was devoted to podcasting. Alan Petersen was the person interviewed. By becoming a Elite member you would have instant access to that podcast.

I tried doing a name search which was no help. I seem to remember that Lynn gave his nickname but it won't bubble to the surface of my aging mind

Hello,

Skype is the most popular way to record interviews among podcasters. You will need a recorder since Skype doesn't have a recording option.

I like:

http://www.pamela-systems.com/

And I've also used: http://hotrecorder.com/

Pamela has a lot more features than hot recorder. For example, she provides HTML template code for posting the recorded Skype audio and video calls as podcasts or blog entries. Very nice.

The pro version is only $24.95 and it's unlimited the cheaper plans limit you 30 minutes and they don't include all the goodies that the pro plan has so it's worth paying the extra $12. They also have a free version which limits your recordings to 15 minutes and it offers pretty basic features compares to pro. But you can give it a whirl for free before deciding if you like it and want to upgrade to pro version.

Hot Recorder is around $15. Not as much features and the recording is sometimes out of sync so for $10 more get Pamela.

If you don't want to use Skype you can use your phone. You will need a digital recorder (better than cassette) and a telephone recorder. I bought one from Radio Shack for $27. This is the telephone recording adapter that I picked up at Radio Shack. And I use an Olympus Digital recorder.

It's very easy you plug your phone via the adapter and then plug in the recorder to your digital recorder and that's it. Make your call, hit record and it will record your calls (both sides).

In my opinion these are the most affordable ways to record these interviews.

Yes you can. I've heard mixed reviews using a PC and Audacity to record skype calls but I have not tried it. If you google "recording skype with audacity" you'll see several tutorials on how to do it. It varies depending on your sound card and OS.

I use Pamela, too, and it's the cat's meow! :wink:

MyPodCast is a very handy service to use, if you're not aware.

Hi Tony, thanks for the heads up on mypodcast.com. Is there much difference between it and blogtalkradio do you know?

I'm not sure. This was the first I've heard of BlogTalkRadio, but I've bookmarked it to check it out. :wink:

I would. It's really intuitive and easy to use. The features are nice, too.
