I agree that MP3 is a good format... but I have also used iTunes to convert data into that format and host as podcasts.  Since I had no intention to sell them, they are just free-for-all, but those who want to hear them are given the URL.  This, of course, requires you to have users with iPods and/or iTunes software... so may not be a 100% solution. 

However... you can download QuickTime (with iTunes) and upgrade to pro to use that format.
