Moving Your Podcast from Libsyn to Podbean

We make it really easy for you to move your Libsyn podcast over to Podbean. First, set up your account in Podbean and choose the plan you like.

Now you can import your old podcasts on Libsyn in to Podbean with just a couple steps.

Step 1: Simply go to “Publish” in your Podbean dashboard and click on “Import RSS”. You will enter your Libsyn feed url there and the tool will automatically begin migrating your podcast episodes (titles and text will migrate immediately, audio and video files will take about 15-30 minutes to load).

Step 2: Set up a redirect in your libsyn account to automatically redirect users to the new feed in iTunes. Libsyn allows you to set up a redirect in “advance options” (in “destinations”, click the “edit” button next to “Libsyn Classic Feed”). Scroll to “Redirect feed to this web address” and enter the url of your new Podbean feed (http://username.podbean.com/feed, please enter your true Podbean username instead of the “username”). Do a quick test by typing in your Libsyn feed address in a browser to ensure it redirects you now to your Podbean url.

We recommend keeping your old feed/site in place for a few weeks to ensure all subscribers have moved across.

Update your feed in iTunes:
