Our marketing folks handle our podcasts. I reached out and here is what they had to say:
We host our podcast on Anchor ( https://anchor.fm/ ). It's super easy to use and if you do not have a podcasting table or equipment as we do, you can actually use your phone to record right from the app. It also pushes your podcast out to other sites, including Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Breaker, Google Podcasts, Overcast, PocketCasts, Radio Public, Stitcher, and Copy RSS.
We used to host on podomatic, but it wasn't my favorite - we are still in the process of moving some of our older content from there over to anchor.

A lot of marketing departments are doing some podcasting, so you might ask
if you could join in on whatever solution they are using.
