Help with podcasting

OK, so I'm all happy because I created my first audio file, with Audacity, and exported it to an mp3 file. Ready? Upload it... wait... what's taking so long? Error message: "this file is too large. You are limited to 1000KB." Check the size of my audio: 5.3 MB!?!?!?

Anyone know how to slim this down?

when you export to mp3 change your bit rate to a lower number. With voice 24 should be fine.

Thanks, EFL Geek. Worked. Now I need some cool-lookin play/pause/stop gifs to add to the page. WordPress doesn't seem to offer anything except a plain text link to the audio. Any suggestions, anyone?
