Hubhopper
Hubhopper is the best tool to create podcasts and publish them from literally anywhere in the world. Also, they have a free listener platform where users can listen to the podcasts, anyone. It's really a good place to hang out, especially for our employees where we encourage them to hear podcasts of famous persons/motivators. We use Hubhopper to create podcasts from our channel and share them with our employees.

Podbean
Podbean is the best podcast hosting service I have seen so far outside of hosting your own podcast server. It has many tools built in that make hosting and sharing your podcast simple. If you are technically minded, there is good software based on WordPress to create a cheap solution for hosting multiple podcasts, but you don't get as many features and you have to do all the work yourself. If you want a solution to quickly and easily get a podcast off the ground and out into the world without having to worry about lots of technical issues, then Podbean is a good way to go.

Alternatives Considered
Hubhopper
It's simple and easy to use plus our employees love the app, except with some issues in the app everything is okay, and it's super easy to create and publish the podcast. Really easy to edit the audios in the platform and has the podcast listener portal used for free. Also, the player plugin is really simple and works well.

For a personal podcast, I host on WordPress with a plugin called Seriously Simple Podcasting. This solution is a bare bones solution, good if you know how to manage a WordPress website and are able to submit your podcasts manually to different apps and services. If you can afford Podbean I would suggest using it because the WordPress route takes a lot more time and technical knowledge. Podbean takes so much of the hassle and work away from the process.
