Don't confuse federal vs state laws. The federal law is a one party rule, but many states (including but not limited to:California, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania and Washington) require BOTH parties to have knowledge that they are being recorded. There are some exceptions when it involves a crime in progress, restraining orders involved, warrants, etc.
Be careful giving out legal advice like "it's not illegal by the way". I know you are trying to be helpful, but you don't want to be the helpful hand that guides someone onto legal trouble.
