I was referring to a conversation in general, without a warrant.

My understanding is someone's written permission (or their knowledge) isn't required in a state that is considered one party. A reason criminals are weary of talking due to the other person being wired to record it.

"Written" permission is never required. For instance it is enough to have oral consent on the tape itself. And the Echo isn't a person. You don't need its consent.

In a one party state, there is no permission required of the other person if the first party is recording. Isn't that true?

That is generally true unless the person doing the recording is a government actor or the agent of one. Then it gets complicated.
