Do yourself a favor and stay away from this. This is commonaly called a
"digital voice recorder" and while it is decent for recording notes in a
classroom or a business meeting it is not high enough quality for what
folks would want for podcasting.
I have two similar units by Olympus. If I remember correctly, it records
it's own format, but when you upload it to your computer it converts it
wav files. You then have to convert *that* to mp3 if you want.
The Zoom H-2 would be your best bet.
