New Apple Podcasts Categories: Updated in Podbean

As you may have heard, Apple Podcasts has announced new podcast categories. You can view the detailed list of updated categories and information from Apple here. Apple will be rolling these out in the coming weeks. Therefore, Podbean has updated the available category options in the Podbean dashboard to reflect these changes in Apple Podcasts.

What do I need to do to update my categories for Apple Podcasts?

Go into your Podbean settings to review your channel category and the full list of options. Log into your Podbean account and go to Settings→”Channel Category”. To change your category, select your preferred category and click the “Update Options” button at the bottom. This will make the appropriate changes to your feed, which will be picked up by Apple and implemented as they do their roll out later.

If you’re starting a new podcast, you can now submit feeds in Podcasts Connect with the updated category values. So, simply follow the normal steps for setting up your podcast and submitting to Apple Podcasts.

Additional categories: You can also go to Settings–>Feed/iTunes and find iTunes: Categories to choose a 2nd and 3rd Apple Podcasts category. Please note as per Apple’s documentation: “Although you can specify more than one category and subcategory in your RSS feed, Apple Podcasts only recognizes the first category and subcategory.”

If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to the Podbean Support team.
