There are a few software implementations of gpg encrypted lists available.

We've used mailman-ssl ( a patch to mailman ) but stopped after problems, and moved to schleuder2 which is under active development.

( see http://schleuder.nadir.org/e/index )

Rather than host your own instance ( maintaining a mail server can be a chore and you have  the added complexity of a gpg list software )

nadir.org ( a fine radical tech collective like riseup.net aktivix.org antifa.net autistici.org boum.org cat.org.au ecn.org espora.org enzyme.org.nz guardachuva.org interactivist.net linefeed.org moviments.net mutualaid.org nadir.org nodo50.org poivron.org resist.ca sarava.org sindominio.net so36.net squat.net tachanka.org taharar.org taktic.org tao.ca kariva.org .... ) who are developing shleuder can provide a managed list for you.
