Anchor is the service that I am using and have been recommending to anyone who wants to quickly start a podcast. Anchor does all of the work of submitting your podcast's feed to all of the major podcast distribution networks including Google Play and Apple Podcasts. My simple method of producing a podcast with Anchor is outlined here.
One of my few complaints about Anchor was addressed last week when Anchor added the option to customize the landing page for your podcast. Previously, you were stuck with whatever color scheme Anchor gave you for your podcast's landing page. Now you can customize that color scheme. You can use any color hex code you like on your page.

This doesn't change how Anchor works when it comes to producing a podcast. It's just a nice little improvement that students who use Anchor might appreciate as it gives them a bit of control over how their podcast landing pages appear to visitors.
