Importing your Podcast into Podpal

Before you can move your podcast from Simplecast, 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 Simplecast.

Redirecting your RSS Feed from Simplecast to Podpal

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

  1. Log into your Simplecast account on the web

  2. Click the dropdown menu in the top left of your screen

  3. Select 'Show Distribution'

  4. Scroll down to 'Advanced Settings'

  5. Locate the 'Redirect your podcast' section

  6. Paste your Podpal RSS feed into the 'RSS Feed Redirect' field

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

  8. Click 'Save' in the top right corner to confirm you'd like to redirect your podcast to Podpal

Simplecast recommends giving it about a week for this to fully take effect across all platforms you're distributed to. You can delete your Simplecast 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.
