    Before you can export an mp3 file, however, you'll need to have the "LAME encoder" on your computer. Mp3 is not a fully free format, therefore the Audacity people won't include the mp3 encoder in the application - you need to install it separately.

    Michael Gwyther recently gave a brilliant presentation on audio technologies in general, including podcasting, RSS, and a brilliant introduction to using Audacity.

    All about the podcast.
