Importing your Podcast into Podpal

Before you can move your podcast from Buzzsprout, 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 Buzzsprout.

Redirecting your RSS Feed from Buzzsprout to Podpal

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

  1. Log into your Buzzsprout account on the web

  2. Click the 'Settings' menu in the top right-hand corner of the main dashboard

  3. Select 'Cancel/Redirect Podcast'.

  4. Next, select the center option to 'Redirect Your Podcast Feed'

  5. From there you will be taken to an informational page with the full process of placing your 301 Redirect with Buzzsprout.

  6. In 'Step 5: Redirect your Buzzsprout RSS Feed' enter your Podpal RSS feed into the 'Your New Feed URL' input field.

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

  8. Check the 'Checkbox' to confirm you want the feed redirected.

  9. Click the 'Redirect Feed and Downgrade to the Buzzsprout Free Plan' button.

Buzzsprout recommends giving it about 3 weeks for this to fully take effect across all platforms you're distributed to. You can downgrade to the free Buzzsprout plan and delete your Buzzsprout account. However, we'd strongly recommend not doing so until after the 3-week period has taken place to make sure you retain your listeners through the switching process.
