I'd rather have it as a youtube besides you can convert the youtube to mp3 if you want to quite easyly
Obviously i am biased to a yes since i started the idea. I dont think it costs anytrhing at all to use Podbean service to host your podcast and there are probably a number of other free hosting services as well. @Relwoh i see where your going with the podcast conversion and yes its very easy and ive done it before. but for many people we use podcast apps on our cell phones that auto download the newest version as soon as its posted. I listen regularly to the 'from the ashes" podcast and their other podcasts as well. Its nice to just have those updated and downloaded automatically on my iphone instead of converting and uploading it manually. Making the podcast more accessible helps grow the podcasts listener base. Just as long as the content is regularly put our on a predictable schedule.
