There are a few different options for communicating with your remote guest, but here I’m going to cover Skype.
Skype is still the most common online communication platform, way ahead of Google Hangouts and other competitiors, so using Skype is generally the easiest option for your guests. This is particularly important if you’re considering interviews for your show. You want to make it as easy as possible for your guest to participate, and that means using the platform they’re used to. In the vast majority of cases, that means Skype.
So, Skype provides the method of communication – now you just need to record it! Here are the best packages depending on your platform:
Pamela Call Recorder
This is PC-only, and is very good value at only $16. Pamela is really easy to use, providing push-button or auto recording.
Ecamm Call Recorder
Ecamm is the package of choice for mac users. Super easy to use, good quality and only $30 to purchase.
