Question: Recommended HW/SW setup for a novice podcaster?

Looking for a microphone and software for a friend to use in getting started with podcasting.

He'll be doing single-person recording from home on a Windows machine, with minimal editing. He's not a big geek, so it needs to be simple to set up and use. Price range is $100-200.

Google turns up links for the Alexis USB Podcast Mic Kit -- is that a good choice? I see that kit includes headphones -- are those important? Any other gadgets or doodads that make podcasting better? Thanks!

The Podcasting Toolbox is invaluable.

I see that kit includes headphones -- are those important?

Headphones allow you to listen to an audio input/track/source without it bleeding into the recording of your voice.
