Speakers have 3 options to call in:

* I can initiate a call to your wired POTS line (no cell no wireless) This 
  is often the easiest for you, but the lowest quality.
* Best Quality is to call in from a computer headset via Skype, that works very well.
* The Heroic Option, is to talk to me via Skype, but use Audacity (thinking PC - there are mac and unix options) to record your microphone only from your host. You would then need to upload the WAV file after the podcast and its often 300mb+.

The show is produced by Jim Manico and Kevin Coons from ManaTribe from the island of Kauai using

- Skype (allow callers to call-in via computer)
- SkypeIN/OUT (allow callers to call in via a standard phone number
- MX Skype Recorder (to record the Skype feed)
- Soundforge (simple first-pass editing - Audacity is a free alternative)
- Garage Band or Pro Tools (eq, sound levels, conversion to mp3 - Audacity is a free alternative)
- mp3tag (allows for detailed tagging of your mp3's metadata, including providing an embedded image)

The actual recording hardware includes:

- (podcast 1-5) Plantronics USB Headset
- (podcast 6-12) Generic ebay headset (8$)
- (podcast 13-) Blue Icycle USB to XLR converter, Shure SM58 Vocal Microphone, 
  professional stand alone pop screen.
- Dell XPS 420, Win XP, 3.5 gb RAM (recording)
- Mac Mini (final mastering) 
- Oceanic Time Warner-Cable Turbo Net Access (Hawaiian Islands)
