Audio Podcasting  - 
 
How do you mitigate audio leakage when doing a double-ended recording?  
I'm working on a web app that makes it easy to record double-ended recordings (http://zencastr.com) but I am having users complaining about audio leakage from their guest's headphone to their guest's microphone.  

I have advised them to turn down the audio as low as possible.  Also to invest in better gear.  The problem is that their guests may just be using an apple earbud/mic combo.  The leakage on these is terrible.

 Any tips I can offer them in this situation?

Yes, they are wearing headphones.  The problem is that the audio leaks from the headphones to the mic.

Podcast Websites  - 
 
I'm working on a service called Zencastr to help podcasters easily record their guests in high quality from their web browser.  

Basically you start a room on zencastr.com, send links out to your guests, they get recorded in separate tracks, the tracks are uploaded to your dropbox account.

I'd love to get your ideas on what your pain points are around remotely recording guests and co-hosts.  Does Zencastr address any of these pains?  What else could I add to make it more useful?

Thanks for your input!

+Dave Slusher Blog Talk Radio paid accounts now have the ability to broadcast an HD stream. Before now, they were a telephone bridge. I would not be at all surprised to see BTR become much more of an industry player. Their studio web interface is the best online call screening software that I can find. We used to use their telephone bridge just to take calls for a live show.

Hey All,  I'm Josh.  

I'm working on Zencastr - The easiest way to record your Skype/Hangouts guests in perfect quality.  

I recently launched a beta for it and would love feedback from this community on how well it solves your recording issues.

It is completely free to use while it is in beta.  Please give it a whirl!
