Monthly Round-Up: Celebrities Using Skype

Skype is everywhere! While we often talk about the great stories of how every-day users and businesses are connecting using Skype, it’s also frequently used by another key set of people – celebrities and pop-culture figures. This month, we wanted to share some fun Skype celebrity video calls that we discovered on TV and around the web. Check out a few of the many examples from this past month below:

Comedian, TV/radio personality and podcaster Adam Carolla was recently interviewed by San Diego’s 102.1 KPRiFM radio DJ Dan Brozo. Carolla regularly uses Skype to connect with his podcast’s guests and listeners.
