Yes following some of the pdcasts and OTT often the participants are not in the same place but connected over the internet.

It will just need someone to be the cordinator and someone with the skills to make the recording!

Very C21st!!

I have some experience of this now. Just need Skype and were good to go. Editing is the biggest chore...a 2 hour podcast can take 8-10 hours of editing using Audacity. Again I have experience if this and would be happy to do it. Maybe a quarterly release to go hand in hand with the magazine?

The other issue is cost...podcasts aren't free to run. Typically they cost around £10-15 per month.

I can explore if there are cheaper options. I have been told there are free hosting platforms but never found one.

Sean what would your recommendations be for a good SKYPE headset?
Would we need any other software / hardware?

We can host podcasts here if necessary. The new hosting package is less restrictive storage.

Tools I use are RingCentral , Google Hangouts and Skype ... all of whom you can record (and are free) with lots of features for presentation - screen share etc

I've used both Zencastr and Skype to record the conversation. It has them been edited using Audacity and hosted on Podbean.

Simon, if you can show me where to go on here it would be the best place for it I think.

Les,

I have no idea to be honest. I use an old headset from work. It needs a microphone on it and defiantly a USB connection. Then it's just a case of downloading Skype. During the set up process you create a username. I call you on that just like a telephone call and bingo.

That was quick!

If as Simon C. says, the podcast can be hosted on this site then there will be no cost involved. The only issue I would ponder is can I get it so it is captured in the various podcast apps.

I suppose the question is how to capture the skype call for editing in Audacity.

I can do that....you can record your conversation and then just import it into Audacity.

The question is whatever format hosts the podcast on this site needs to be recognised by iTunes. Once the cast has been accepted by iTunes, it becomes visible on all podcast apps.

I have run a podcast for a few months now using Podbean which is recognised by iTunes so easy for listeners to find. I have averaged 500+ downloads per episode.

Let's see how we get on...

Apologies Pbeccas. This was the last episode from a few weeks ago now where I interviewed Greg Wagman from Little Wars TV.
