    I was recommended Simplecast by Justin Jackson the host of a few podcasts but most recently, Mega Maker. I was going to go with SoundCloud but after looking into Simplecast, I decided to give it a shot. Absolutely love it. Fast to setup and get podcast on all trackers. It creates a website for you you can attach a custom domain to. Allows to show sponsors and collect donations if you wish. Price is very good. I love it. Everything you need to launch.

    Create beautiful websites and blogs easily

    Hi! I recently started a podcast knowing basically nothing about the process. Besides all the editing software, you're gonna need to set up your RSS feed to send it to iTunes and all the other podcast players. Squarespace makes it super easy to manage and add new episodes. The easiest to get your podcast started.

    If you plan to publish more than one show and don't want to pay a service for each individual feed, or you're interested in having more control over your feeds (like mixing audio and video versions, cross-publishing to different feeds easily and more) then PowerPress is a fantastic option, and it's completely free.
