Anchor

Record bite-sized podcasts that anyone can join ⚓

Kunal Bhatia- Co-founder & Design Lead @SlidesUp
Anchor does a nice job with allowing you to create podcasts directly from your phone with some great engagement features. They also allow you to convert your existing podcasts from SoundCloud, RSS, etc., to make the switch easier (see https://anchor.fm/switch). You can even publish Anchor podcasts outside the app to Apple and Google.
Leigh Cooper- I make videos on the internet!
Agree with Kunal! Anchor's mobile tools are great. The only downside is that (as of yet) you can only add clips from an external file from the desktop version, and all podcasts are cut into smaller Snapchat story-like chunks. I'd recommend it more for shorter podcasts than longform conversation podcasts.

Anchor 3.0

The easiest way to make a podcast. Ever.

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

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.
