Deleting Shows in your Simplecast Dashboard

  • Deleting a show is a permanent action and cannot be undone by you or Simplecast!
  • The podcast details, audio files, analytics, and RSS feed will be completely purged from our database and servers. 
  • Deleting a show will delete your billing and subscription information, so you will no longer be billed for the show.
  • If you are moving your show to a new podcast hosting company, be sure transfer your show, download analytics, and set up a 301 Redirect before deleting the show. 
  • You will find the option to 'Delete Podcast' at the bottom of  'Show Settings'

It is best to review this entire article before deleting a podcast from your account.

Redirecting Your Podcast RSS

If you are moving your show to another host, be sure to create a redirect first by clicking the Distribution Settings from the dropdown menu on the top left corner:

Then paste in the new RSS feed URL for your show under the RSS FEED REDIRECT field. Select SAVE on the top right corner to complete this redirect. We recommend leaving your account active until after you've published a few episodes in the new feed.

Backup Your Podcast Content

You should also download audio episode files or episode notes or download data you'd like to keep before you confirm deletion. Once you click to confirm deletion, there is no way for us to access or restore anything related to your show.

How to Delete a Podcast

If you'd like to permanently delete your show:

  1.  Select Show Settings from the dropdown menu on the top left corner:

2. Scroll down and select Delete Show

3. Select DELETE "YOUR PODCAST NAME." The button below will take you through the deletion process. You will have the opportunity to change your mind up until you confirm at the end.
