Why is the latest episode of my show not showing on Apple Podcasts?

Apple Podcasts monitors your show’s RSS feed to ensure any new episodes, artwork, or metadata edits are visible within 24 hours. You can see the last time your show was refreshed in My Podcasts in Podcasts Connect

If it’s been more than 24 hours, and your latest episodes or metadata edits aren’t visible, confirm that they have been successfully published on your RSS feed or on your hosting provider’s platform. Then, use Podcasts Connect to manually refresh your show.

How do I refresh my show?

To manually refresh a show, follow these steps. You may also watch the Refreshing Podcasts video tutorial:

  1. Within My Podcasts in Podcasts Connect, select the show in question.
  2. Click Refresh Feed within the show's detail page.

You’ll see Scheduled for Refresh here while the process completes. Then, your changes will be visible on Apple Podcasts.

My show was removed for technical reasons. How do I fix this?

Apple Podcasts routinely monitors your show’s RSS and all of its content. Should we ever fail to connect with your RSS feed URL or with any of the assets within it, our system will automatically remove the show.

You can use Podcasts Connect to resubmit the feed after you've resolved the technical issue. Remember to validate your feed to identify any possible issues. Your hosting provider should be able to assist you in rectifying any issues found.
