Recording a podcast - beginners questions

Hello everybody,

I’m trying to get a software setup to record a podcast. The way I would like it to work would be that Audacity 2.4.2 records my USB microphone and incoming audio from Skype or discord. I’ve looked for some time but fail to make any progress.

Are there any FOSS solutions for my problem? Have a nice day everyone.

For Skype there’s a program called “Pamela”. Last time I looked they had a free version with limited features.
Zoom has a built-in recorder.

Audacity will probably not be able to record while Skype or Zoom are running as those apps try to take exclusive control of the sound system.

Thank you

The magic-phrase is “virtual mixer”.
