Then iTunes it is! I just downloaded the player (all 32.8 megs on my slow dialup) and it's installed and appears to be working well. Looking forward to your podcasts.

Ah, to each his own...

Yikes! I dunno! Couldn't you get James Earl Jones to read it?
This edition features news of a controversy involving Crown Royal's NASCAR racing team...events, and Jim McEwan discussing the new Bruichladdich Rocks single malt...
That Jim McEwan is a sharp guy. Really looking forward to hearing the interview about Jimmy Russell. Don't suppose you asked him why their 10yo is being reduced in strength to 90 proof ?
You're absolutely right...the first interview was done by phone using Skype...and the recording software that plugs into it splits the audio into two different channels. I'm still trying to figure out a workaround for that. The second interview was done in-person.
As far as putting the actual podcast together, it takes me longer to write up everything and update the web sites than it does to record the show. Once I have the interviews done, I write everything up in a few minutes, record it, and edit everything together into an .mp3 file. That process takes about 20 minutes if I'm on my game...
After that, I upload the file to both hosting sites and update all of the copy that goes with it...the whiskycast.com site also requires adding links to all of the sites mentioned in the show, moving the oldest show into the archives, and updating all of those links.
That's probably more detail than you wanted. Overall, each show takes about an hour of production time -- not counting the interviews.
Hope this helps...
Another way would be duplicating the track and switch the channels around for that. But I think this will also double the volume, so you'll have to set the volume for both tracks to 50%
And another thing I noticed: occasionally the volume difference between you and the interviewee is quite different. maybe normalizing the audio files as well will help solve that.
Does it sound like I have been solving such issues myself quite a few times?
I use it almost always for my audio editting needs (even to clean up vinyl recordings and so with hiss filters, which will also be of great help to clean your skype recordings!)
