Podcasts and the magic of Skype
« on: February 01, 2010, 08:31:52 AM »
I'd be really interested in an article on Podcasts, Skype and talkshoe etc. I've had Skype installed on every piece of hardware I've owned (even PSP) for years but I've never used it. In November, I've agreed to go on the TGT podcast and I know it's a live podcast recorded over Skype. Some tips on setting it up, using it, maybe some podcast interviewee tips, what the hell talkshoe is, etc. would be really helpful to a lot of us new guys.

This, please. I can never figure out how people do live podcasts with skype. Articles I've read about it have been confusing at best, and I get the impression that you need other software, too. If someone could make a tutorial and walk us through the process, that would be sweet as pie.

Oh I can probably do this. I ran a pretty big podcast on Talkshoe when I was working with Rooster Teeth.

I'll look into Skyp as I've used it once or twice but am not familiar with it 100%. I know that it's a VIOP alternative phone service but I wasn't aware it did actual podcasting like Talkshoe. I can't imagine there is much difference though if it does.

I'll get on this.  ;)

YES! We need more podcasts.

My commute is about 1 hour each way, so I listen to a LOT of podcasts.

Download Gizmo and call into Talkshoe for absolutely free. That's what I did!

My cohosts and I used to use Talkshoe for our podcast, but we weren't really satisfied with call quality.  The only reason we were using it was to have the live element to our show, but not that many people were participating in the chat room, so we switched over to Skype.  Now, we each record our end of the conversation on our own computers, and I composite and edit them.  It's so much clearer and more manageable now.  We still use Talkshoe to host our sound files, but we're looking into moving away from it entirely.
