Having Good Hardware

3:50 Jim explains how having good hardware is vital.

Live Interviews With Skype

7:05 Kim from asks about recording a skype call. Do I need a mixer?

Jim has shipped people microphones like the Audio Technica 2100 to ensure you have quality. In Kim's case she tried to connect is skype and her guest was using Skype on his phone. Her solution was to have her guest on wi-fi and connect via skype on their phone. (the guest was not technical at all).

You need a mixer when you are playing music live while you talk, if you have a co-host in the room for you. If you are recording skype with just one other co-host you can use a mixer, but you don't need it. You can do it without it.

Headset microphones will work, but they don't very good.

35:04 It's going to take a story to make them great. Just because its real stories, and real people, doesn't mean its interesting. The Mystery show didn't do much for me. You can read my review on the blog.

Para-scope Questions

44:05 Its the wild, wild, west when it comes to Para-scope. Live streaming video from anywhere. Jim got a ton of people putting Monkey with microphones.
