The podcast is currently audio-only, but, that will be changing in 2020! The interview system I use, Squadcast, uses video, but at this time it is just to see each other during the interview. It isn't recorded. If you have a camera, great. A camera isn't needed, however. The video of the conversation is not recorded. After we schedule a time, you will receive a link to the meeting room via email.
Why Squadcast and not Skype? Skype was just not designed with audio as a priority. Additionally, there originally was no native component to record audio or video. Skype has been developing a version called Skype For Creators which addresses some of these issues, but I'd rather stick with a service designed from the ground up for great quality audio. There is nothing for you to download, Squadcast is a web-based service, and you'll receive a link to the online meeting room.
Microphone - You can certainly use the microphone built in to your laptop, but an external USB/XLR microphone is preferable. No need to go out and buy any equipment, but if you have an external microphone they generally have better audio quality.
Webcam Or External Camera - A camera is nice to have, but not necessary. It's nice to see each other during the conversation, and I've found it make things a bit easier. You can use your webcam built into your laptop, or an external camera. As I mentioned earlier, the video is not recorded-- no need to primp!
Headphones or earbuds - To avoid audio feedback coming through on your side of the recording, please plan on using headphones (or earbuds) and optionally a headset mic for your audio. (If you are playing audio on your PC/Laptop speaker, this will be picked up by your microphone...which is bad.) I know we can't always have perfect quiet (boy, I wish I had some in my life...) but also please be aware of any background noise that can affect the quality of the sound, e.g. fans, a/c units, pets, kids, etc.
Additionally, I would close any other running software on your PC/laptop that may make sounds/alerts. Please mute/ turn off your phone.
