Trying to create a podcast with someone remotely? Here’s a video on how to use Skype and Audio Hijack Pro for Mac to record conversations you have on Skype. The drawbacks? Audio Hijack Pro costs $32 (though if your recording is less than 10 minutes long you don’t need to pay for it). This application seems to be the most highly regarded by podcast enthusiasts. Call Recorder is another Mac application with a free trial period and you can buy it for $14.95.
And for Windows? CallBurner is free for 14 days, Pamela is free for 30 days and $29.95 for the pro version (or you can get the basic version, which will record calls up to 15 minutes for free), and Call Graph is a free, ad-supported platform, though I’ve seen a few comments that the quality of the recording was not ideal. Lifehacker featured a post on Call Graph.
