Simplecast makes it incredibly easy to import your current podcast (including your media files) directly into our system using only your show's current RSS feed. This makes a copy of your show and won't change the original feed or files, and you won't lose any subscribers during the import process.
You will need to create a 301 direct on your old RSS URL. This will ensure podcast directories are using the new feed and you don't lose your current subscribers.
Most hosting services make it easy to add this redirect, though sometimes you need to ask nicely.
For extra measure and to speed up the redirect process, you can manually update your RSS feed URL for the following podcast directories:
- Apple Podcasts
- Google Play Music
- Spotify - you will have to email them here with your new Simplecast RSS URL.
- Google Podcasts - just enabled your Simplecast website and within a few days your podcast will be listed on Google Podcasts!
