Can I record debt collector calls that are already recording me?

LegalFilter: I'd like to record the debt collection calls I'm getting. Assuming the call center requires me to consent to their recording, is that consent reciprocal?

I ask because it's become a hobby of mine to crank the debt collectors hounding me and I'd like to record these calls, perhaps upload a few of them to youtube for some quick lulz.
How legal is this? I've researched the statutes and generally understand the all-party consent laws
but I'm still unclear on whether I have to get consent to record someone who is already recording me.
Anyone know anything about this before I call in a favor with a lawyer or two for proper legal advice? Thanks friends...
