Well not really because Audacity is a powerful audio editor but for making podcasts quickly and easily? Maybe? I’ve been having a play with Myna from a Aviary, which I picked up from Free Technology for Teachers.
It’s pretty straight forward to use and is web based so that you can use it anywhere with a web connection. There is also a large library of music you can add to your projects. The free version means that you won’t have much control over who can sea/hear you audio files though. You can set copyright information for the default ‘all rights reserved’ to creative commons You’ll also need to sigh up for an account to use it.
Have a look at the video and have a play.
