Record Skype Calls for Your Podcast (The Easy Way)
Are you trying to record Skype calls for your podcast? Now you can directly from either your Mac, iPhone, Windows, Android, or Linux device.
Nowadays, nearly every podcaster features guests on a one-off or regular basis. Hugely popular shows like Chapo Trap House and The Time Ferriss Show do this with great success (Chap Trap House is still one of the most profitable podcasts out there), but when they can't get guests in their studio they record talks online.
Likewise, if you've got a guest on the other side of the world it's a no-brainer to record your shows on the old interwebs. Previously, you would have had to use software like Audacity, Adobe Audition, or something like Amolto Call Recorder for Skype to save calls, but not anymore!
Skype has introduced a recording feature making it even easier to save calls and edit them into your latest episode. Here's how you can record Skype calls for your podcast in the easiest way possible!
Firstly, download Skype for either desktop (Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux) or mobile (Android, iPhone, and Windows 10 Mobile).
