Thanks for clarifying. I was just going to. Yeah, everyone still talks 
to each other (by whatever means) and records the audio locally. Then, 
the files are mixed to create the final version.

I agree. I don't know if ever major podcast (or almost every major 
podcast) uses Skype, but it's pretty common. And, hey, if it's good 
enough for Oprah... :p

Honestly, the security issues (which are actually minimal (I use Skype 
weekly with my brother in Indonesia and I've never had a problem), are 
moot (imho) in the case of a podcast session.
