Importing your Podcast into Podpal

Before you can move your podcast from Libsyn, 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 Libsyn.

  • Also, it is common when importing your Libsyn RSS feed into Podpal that the episode count may not be accurate. You may see missing episodes. In order to have all of your episodes imported you will need to change the episode limit on your RSS feed from your Libsyn settings before importing.

Redirecting your RSS Feed from Libsyn to Podpal

Switching your host from Libsyn 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 Libsyn account to make your move official:

  1. Log in to your Libsyn account

  2. Click on "Settings" towards the top of the page

  3. Select "Redirects" from the left-hand sidebar

  4. Paste your new Podpal RSS feed into the box that says "Feed Redirect URL"

  5. Hit "Save" to save your settings. You will be asked to confirm adding your new Podpal RSS feed

  6. Click "Yes" to finalize your 301 redirect to Podpal

We recommend giving it about 30 days for this to fully take effect across all platforms you're distributed to. You can delete your Libsyn account, but we'd strongly recommend not doing so until after the 30-day period has taken place, to make sure you retain your listeners through the switching process.
