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

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.

While certainly a controversial choice among the podcasting community, I suggest SoundCloud. I did a 6-month podcast called Beyond Tweeting (beyondtweeting.com). While I recorded episodes, I live streamed to 5-7 different services at once (including YouTube). When I was finished, I'd edit the audio and upload to SoundCloud, distribute on Tumblr, and the li… See more

A bigger, better way to make your podcast

Anchor for iPad is a powerful tool to edit, share, and broadcast your new podcast directly on iOS. Supports all Lightning-enabled microphones too. 🎙️

Around the web
Engadget
The app is intended to make full use of the iPad's functionality, enabling users to record, produce and edit a podcast episode to completion with just the tablet alone, if need be: It works with microphones through the lightning port, or users can stick with the internal one in a pinch.
Macstories
If you've ever used Anchor to make a podcast, you know just how easy it is. That ease of use, however, has historically meant sacrificing any access to editing tools that most podcasters need. Today that changes, however, as Anchor is introducing basic editing tools as part of the debut of its iPad app.
