You'll be able to do a lot of great things with Anchor, but the monetization piece would be separate. After you build an audience, you could convince people to sponsor segments or 24-hour stories.

Try Anchor. IMO it works really well for podcasts.

Everything about this product from UI and visual design, to onboarding, to features and creation tools, ad infinitum is spot on and glorious. But, turns out, actually making compelling audio is HARD. Plus, those already making compelling audio are podcasting it on the open web. So, this became an "after I catch up with my usual podcasts" app, and let's face … See more

Breaker is a podcast app with a social layer that opens up a new window to discovery. It’s kind of like what the podcast section of Product Hunt would have looked like if it was an app.

I have been listening to podcasts on Breaker for a year. It's the best social podcast app.

I also recommend Breaker, mainly due to the discovery features. With it offering recommendations on a per-episode basis, which I find a lot more beneficial than an entire new show.

Podcast listeners are traditionally creatures of habit when it comes to the app of choice to access all their favorite shows. Thus, whenever a new gateway to podcasts comes along, it often cops the 'not as good as Overcast' treatment and is passed into oblivion.

The easiest way to make a podcast. Ever.

Welcome to Anchor 3.0: the easiest way to make a podcast. Ever.

Anchor just got acquired by Spotify along with Gimlet Media: https://www.recode.net/2019/2/6/18213456/spotify-podcast-gimlet-anchor-q4-results/?ref=producthunt

Recode
Spotify is a streaming music company that wants to become a podcast company, too. Not only has Spotify acquired Gimlet Media, a podcast producer and network, for around $230 million - a deal Recode told you about last week - but it has also bought Anchor, a startup that makes it easier for people to record and distribute their own podcasts.
Business Insider
Making a professional-sounding podcast isn't easy. Most podcasting how-to guides recommend investing in equipment like microphones, audio-editing software, and portable recorders, not to mention a computer. From there, you'll need to learn a set of new software programs and then hunt down a place to host and distribute your podcast.
The Verge
If you've always wanted to start a podcast, Anchor's new update is for you. The shortform audio app is fully embracing podcasting today with the launch of Anchor 3.0, which includes a redesigned app, the service's debut on the web, and tools to distribute a show and track its success.
Engadget
To that end, Anchor 3.0 for iOS and Android is an app for recording first and foremost; consuming short broadcasts from your friends is definitely taking a backseat now. For starters, users can record multiple bits of audio and create a library to build out a finished product.
Medium
With nearly 70 million Americans now listening monthly, podcasts have officially crossed over into the mainstream. Yet like radio, podcasts are incredibly difficult to make, distribute, promote, and monetize. Despite the increasing demand, expensive tools, confusing software, and fragmented, friction-filled workflows have held creators back.
Variety
New York-based audio startup Anchor unveiled a new version of its podcast creation app Thursday that aims to bridge the divide between amateur audio recording and professional podcast creation. In addition to revamped versions of its Android and iOS apps, Anchor also unveiled a new web ab as well as free, unlimited podcast hosting.
TechCrunch
Broadcasting app Anchor, which helps anyone record and share audio, is relaunching its app today with a new focus on serving the larger podcaster community.

A new paid podcast service called Luminary is set to launch tomorrow on iOS, Android, and the web (via ). It got off to a rough start last month as it announced the service with a controversial ad stating "Podcasts don't need ads," and tomorrow the premium podcast service will launch without some of the most popular podcasts found on Apple's platform.
Forbes
Tomorrow, the New York and Chicago-based startup Luminary will launch what it claims will be "Netflix for podcasts," an $8/month subscription service that includes a podcast app and access to dozens of exclusive shows. The podcast industry has been skeptical about, and has tiptoed lightly into, getting consumers to pay directly for podcasts.
The Verge
The subscription podcast startup Luminary launches on April 23rd with shows from Trevor Noah, Karamo Brown, Lena Dunham, Guy Raz, and other stars. But Spotify and The New York Times are withholding popular shows, potentially setting Luminary up to fail.
