We at Auphonic just released our new Multitrack Audio Algorithms, after long development and beta phase!
They should be especially interesting for podcasters which record in multiple tracks: mixing, leveling, noise gates, noise reduction and loudness standards are all applied automatically.

Listen to some audio examples and read more at:

Sorry for the noise and have a nice day!
