Podcasting Problem: Converting WAV to MP3 format

Earlier this week I began a simple Daily Prayer Podcast.  With a Micromemo voice recorder on my 80 GB iPod Classic it is really easy to create a pretty good recording (this ain’t recording studio stuff, but good enough for me).  The only problem is that the Micromemo creates WAV files – which are huge and take forever to upload.  Does anyone know how I can easily convert my Micromemo voice recordings from WAV to MP3 format?

FYI, I run iTunes on Windows XP.

Thanks!

    Since posting this I have downloaded a free program called Switch, by NCH Swift Sound. It works very easily. More later . . .

    I seem to remember iTunes offering to convert my .wav files to .mp3 or .aac formats. You might check it out, since you probably have iTunes with your iPod. There are many other “lossy” type encoders, but Switch may work well for you.

    It is site that appears to be a good, free project meant to give you free storage for your recordings. I have done a little exploring of the media stored there, and they seem well-intentioned, at the very least.

    There’s lots of freeware out there. Check out this link:

    Google “convert wav to mp3 free” and this pops up first.
