Importing your Podcast into Podpal

Before you can move your podcast from Anchor, you'll want to make sure you've imported your existing podcast into Podpal. This video explains what it means to import and redirect your feed:

**Please note: Before you can import your podcast into Podpal, you may need to update the owner email settings in Anchor.

To update the owner email setting in Anchor, follow these steps:

  1. Log into your Anchor account on the web.

  2. Select the podcast you're planning to move to Podpal

  3. Click on 'Settings' in the upper right-hand corner of the page

  4. Select 'Update Settings' from the drop-down menu

  5. Scroll down to the 'Account Settings' area of the page

  6. Update the 'Owner Email' field to an email that you have access to

  7. Click 'Save' to save your settings

Redirecting your RSS Feed from Anchor to Podpal

Switching your host from Anchor to Podpal is easy and only takes a few minutes! After you've imported your podcast, follow these few steps to set up a 301 redirect from your Anchor account to make your move official:

  1. Log into your Anchor account on the web

  2. Click 'Settings' in the top right of your screen

  3. Click 'Update settings'

  4. Scroll down to the 'Leaving Anchor' section, locate the 'Redirect your podcast' section

  5. Paste your Podpal RSS feed into the box provided for Redirect URL

  6. Double-check that you've entered your Podpal RSS feed URL

  7. Click 'Redirect', and confirm you'd like to redirect your podcast to Podpal

Anchor recommends giving it about a week for this to fully take effect across all platforms you're distributed to. You can delete your Anchor account, but we'd strongly recommend not doing so until after that week period has taken place, to make sure you retain your listeners through the switching process.
