It’s a fairly common misconception that iTunes (now Apple Podcasts) and other podcast directories host your podcast media files (typically an MP3). You don’t actually upload your podcast episode files to iTunes.

Makes sense so far.

But recording your Skype calls requires additional software or hardware, or both.

I also recommend you have your guest use a dedicated microphone if at all possible. And make sure they are using Skype on the computer, not on their phone. Those can be interrupted by regular phone calls.

I’ll highlight 3 different ways you can record your Skype interviews, starting with the easiest:

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could just record your podcast, wait a couple of days, and have a perfectly edited and ready-to-go podcast episode to deliver to your audience?

Well, you can!

Looking for podcast editing software?

There are a number of podcast editing services that will do just that. But that’s not all. Many of these companies will implement ID3 tags, create show notes and links, and even upload the episode for you.

They can help you choose podcast equipment, design cover art, submit to podcast directories, consult on show ideas, start a podcast… you name it!
