Twice a week, with Shel in California (usually) and me here in the UK, we record our one-hour show over Skype. Weâ€ve been doing that since January 2005 and weâ€ve now done 375 shows, plus a good 30 or more niche podcasts (interviews, reviews, etc).
If Skype hadnâ€t been around when we started FIR, I very much doubt we would have started at all.
So I say a big â€˜thank youâ€ to Skype.
Today, I canâ€t imagine there not being a service like Skype. Yes, there are now a few competitors. But for me, Skypeâ€s the one I stick with.
