How would you handle e.g. skype? Or recording audio from e.g. youtube into your podcast?

The method I’m using is inspired by Cliff Ravenscraft ( where he recommends using an external mixer and XLR mic’s and recording to an external recorder. I’m still working out the kinks in the methodology but with his recommended method you can bring a number of audio sources (to the limit of your mixer) together, directly interact with telephone or skype participants, and the mixer takes care of it. I don’t know of a way to do that inside the computer.

Take the example of recording youtube audio into your podcast. I’ve done this and using an external mixer makes it easy. How would you do that with Garageband?
