My friend Richard Nikoley, who runs FreeTheAnimal.com, turned me on to Call Recorder for Skype. I’ve had Skype on my iPad since I got it, but I’ve never played with it. And I tried to make video-interview-style broadcasting work a few years ago, with limited success. For one-on-one calls, at least, Call Recorder seems to be a big win.
What I’d like to do is record video conversations by Skype and then make the recordings available here. Think of it as talk radio with moving pictures. Big commitment on your part, since I’m a no-holds-barred kind of guy. But I think it could be illuminating for everyone involved.
So are you game? You’ll need a free Skype account plus a webcam and some kind of audio input. If you have a recently-made computer, all of that is probably built-in. Hit me by email if you’d like to give it a try.
