Also I'd love to guest commentate if that's something you'd be interested in. I find it's easier to have an amusing commentary when you have two people riffing off each other. It's a lot easier to do now that livestream exists.

I would absolutely be interested in that. I've never tried livestreaming and I'm not sure how my system would handle it (I made it fairly low-budget), but I'll test it out and see how things go.

Hey Studly, you still up for that co-commentary? I've gotten some new hardware, so I think I can make it work now. I've just started CK3, but I thought it'd be fun to have you along for 4.

I'm interested in doing a Keen Let's Play myself. I have a Blue Yeti Microphone, Audacity, and ZD Game Recorder. I've just acquired all three of these, so I don't know how to utilize them to make an LP yet.

What's the best method to make a live commentary LP? Do I use one program to record audio and a separate program to record video, or is there a program that can do both simultaneously?

Congrats! I think you're going to have a lot of fun. I'm not familiar with the ZD recorder. Many recorders grab both the system and mic audio (like FRAPS or Camtasia). I've also heard of Bandicam and Dxtory, but I've never tried those. Regardless, you can definitely grab the two audio tracks separately, but that makes editing a little more of a hassle.
Let me know if you have any more questions as you get started, and I can try to help!

Bandicam might seem pretty strange at first because it's not as user-friendly as fraps, but it records at a decent quality and is much faster than fraps. I had trouble with recording in dosbox though and have since given up. For example, the low-end PC preset records at a pretty good youtube 360p quality and barely even slows my computer down.
It just might be done someday. The chance is always there.
