Podcasting trick

Since the beginning of the Freestyle Skateboarding Podcast I’ve had a problem.

The podcast is recorded from Skype, using a Mac app called Audio Hijack Pro (see this post for my complete setup).

The problem:  Skype doesn’t allow me to hear my own voice in my headphones. So while I talk to my podcast partners I can hear them well, but really have a hard time telling how loud my own voice is.

The headphones are plugged into my MacBook, of course. My microphone goes into my mixing board.

Solution. I plug earbuds into the mixing board headphone jack, then wear one earbud inside my headphones. I can hear my own voice now and the folks I’m talking to.
