This guide includes the skills and software you need to record a two minute interview with a minimum amount of equipment. This means doing an interview using just one microphone and a laptop. This guide will show you how to record the interview to the laptop using Audacity. Audacity is an audio recording and editing programme that can be installed on Windows, Linux, or Mac OSX. This guide  will show you how to set up, record your interview, edit your audio using Audacity, common problems and exporting the interview.
