Gear always comes down to budget... hard to recommend stuff when I'm not sure what you're looking to spend and the production value you desire to have.
Rite I'm setting up Skype which so far seems to be the cheapest,so I guess a ballpark figure for something like that n the most expensive

I'm set up for Skype which seems to be the cheapest,my op budget is kinda small for now, so maybe my Max would be like 2-300 bux even then I probably have to save up for a bit for that

Yes, use the USB mic to get quality audio, then use skype to record podcast itself using the USB as your audio source. Nothing worse than junk audio in a podcast. Just like making good videos, you'll need a good microphone for your podcast.

You could also use OBS with skype to get more options in editing. OBS is free. Then you can use audacity which again is free, and then distribution wouldn't cost anything if you post to the free podcast websites! :D
