Recording Skype with No Mixer or Software

Recording a Skype interview can be a tricky process. There are “easy” ways to do this with software like Audio Hijack Pro for Mac and Pamela for Windows but they can still be hard to setup and of course anytime you’re using software you are at risk of it crashing and losing the entire interview.

If you don’t know him, he is a wine retailer turned podcaster turned millionaire.  But what I know Gary for most are his insights into new media and his awesome ability to speak and engage an audience. You will definitely see what I mean when you watch this video. He never lacks for energy. The bottom line, when Gary speaks he’s often right and this is one of those times… [Read more…]
