Equipment suggestions for posting podcasts to AppleVis

I wasn't quite sure where to put this, as it primarily has to do with apps and podcasting, though my question has more to do with software and equipment more than anything else. If it needs to be moved, I can repost it, though.
Anyhow, to get to the gist of my topic, I'd like to do a podcast for AppleVis, but am unsure of how to get VoiceOver to come through clearly. I have no idea on how to record things like podcasts, or, for that matter, anything else on my computer. I would be grateful for any suggestions.
Here's my setup:
A Windows 7 PC running NVDA
A Logitech headset mic
I have no idea how to get things so that I can hear VoiceOver and still have it sound nice on the podcast. Maybe I'm making things more complicated than they need to be, but I would prefer not to just hold the phone up to the mic or something like that. It just feels and sounds both clumsy and awkward to me. I want this podcast to sound somewhat good, not only for its own sake, but because it will have been the first podcast I've ever done, and I want it to sound decent and not cobbled together or something.
I also have no idea what kind of software I would need to record it. I would prefer to not spend any money, and I don't want too many bells and whistles. I also do not have any usable vision, if that impacts things at all.
I was considering making a podcast on Amazon's Cloud Player app for iOS, which I just got a few days ago. I'm pretty sure there isn't a podcast up here on it yet, as I download all the AppleVis podcasts to listen to in my spare time.
If anyone has any suggestions for me, I would highly appreciate feedback.
