How do I validate and submit my show?

There are two ways to validate your RSS feed in Podcasts Connect — manually or by using a pass-through URL. For manual validation, follow these steps. You may also watch the Podcasts Connect Basics video tutorial:

  1. Within My Podcasts, click the plus sign “+”.
  2. Enter the RSS Feed URL in the designated field.
  3. Click Validate.
  4. Review and fix any validation warnings or errors, if applicable. Then, click validate again.
  5. If your feed validates successfully, Podcasts Connect will display a preview of your show.
  6. Review the preview. Pay attention to the artwork, as well as all of the details about your show and episodes — such as title, author name, description, and category.
  7. If ready, click Submit. 

For more details on pass-through URL validation, see Podcasts Connect Help.

Note for hosting providers: Implement the SubmitFeed parameter in your links to Podcasts Connect to allow for passthrough of the show feed URL. 

For example, https://podcastsconnect.apple.com/my-podcasts/new-feed? submitfeed=https://www.veryhungrytourist.com/show.xml will pre-populate the show's feed URL in Podcast Connect, ready for validation.
