Converting .rm to .mp3

A friend referred me to a place to listen to some lectures but the files are all saved in .rm format which i am assuming is the realplayer real media. I abhor realplayer and am therefore looking for a free program that might be able to convert the files to either wav, mp3, or wma - something i can listen to through my 360 or burn to a CD to listen to in the car.

Anyone know of some freeware that will let me do this?

That is cool and the thirty day trial will let me convert these lecture... but is there any freeware out there that won't expire or require purchase to do this?

dBpowerAMP is free. The only thing that has a 30-day trial/cost is the MP3 encoder. You could convert the .rm files to WAVs for free, then use WIndows Media Encoder for WMA, or any free MP3 encoder for MP3s.

Or you could find the previous version of dbpoweramp. I'm not sure which version I found that was free, I'm not at my home computer, but it is still out there.
