I want to make a podcast kind of thing and record what I am saying on the microphone and then export it as an MP3. What is a good simple program to do this?

I'd use Audacity for this. It's a totally free audio recorder and editor. You can export into any format, but don't forget to fetch the "mp3 export plugin".

Windows has already integrate a sound recorder on its own. But if you want more feature then a 3rd party recorder is recommended
