Podbean offers so many great features and benefits for podcasters, so you may be thinking of moving your podcast from Spreaker to Podbean. Many podcasters hesitate because they think it could be complicated or costly to migrate their podcast. But, we make it super simple for you to move your Spreaker podcast over to Podbean. And, there’s no cost to migrate unlimited media to Podbean.

Step 1: Import your Podcasts

After you create a Podbean account, simply go to “Publish” in your Podbean dashboard and click on “Import RSS”. You will enter your Spreaker feed url there and the tool will automatically begin migrating your podcasts*.

Spreaker will then add the entered iTunes redirect tag to your feed for you. You can log into your iTunes Podcast Connect page and refresh your feed. If not, iTunes will pick up the change within a few days. We recommend keeping your old Spreaker feed in place for a few weeks to ensure all subscribers have moved across.

Step 3: Turn on the iTunes new feed URL tag in your Podbean account

1. Log in to your Podbean account and go to the ‘Settings’->’Feed/iTunes’ page.

2. Scroll down the page, turn on the “iTunes:new-feed-url”, then click the “Update Options” button to save your changes.

Step 4: Update your podcast information in iTunes

Here is the Podcasts Connect Help article on updating your RSS  (follow the steps under “to change your RSS feed URL”).
