Yes, you need a battery module or a pre-amp. I had the same problem with my Radio Shack mic, even though it came with a battery. Apparently there's just not enough power to get the sound up to line in audibility.

I use a battery module from SoundProfessionals, though I didn't like dealing with the company. For podcasting, it should be good, though awkward to carry around all that equipment. I don't know how a more expensive, hand-held powered mic would work.

Also, to correct what I said earlier, it records in 128 or 160 wmv, not mp3.
