eitje: I have. You talk into the cone for the speaker, which makes the magnet at the back vibrate, moving across the coils for the electromagnet, generating a signal. Or however it works. Basically running the headphones in reverse. Works in a pinch, but the sound quality is rarely anything to write home about. Fortunately, crappy mics are extremely cheap, or even free if you know someone who's been using computers for a while. Time was, any new internal modem or soundcard for a PC, or any new mac would come with a low-end microphone. Over a few years of the upgrade treadmill, one tended to either accumulate spares or throw them out with the boxes.

Ha ha, Holly your lucky. You have a microphone. I tried my hand on a podcast the other day, but all I have is a pair of headphones--note, it is NOT a headSET, it's a pair of headphones--that when you plug into a microphone port, they work as a microphone. THAT is seriously bad quality. Good luck on the podcast!
