Is there an alternative to Skype?

Episode 1502 (1:17:35)

Micah from Maine
Skype

Micah has been frustrated with Skype making unwanted changes and he eventually just gave up and chose to use Google Hangouts instead. Leo says that the sad thing about Microsoft buying Skype is that they continue to dumb it down to make it "easier" to use. But it gets frustrating because it doesn't always help when it comes to sound quality for recording.
