How Can I Submit My Podcast to Podbean’s Directory (and Apps)?

Podbean offers a huge directory of podcasts for listeners to discover. These include podcasts hosted on Podbean as well as many others, in all genres. This directory also populates Podbean’s Android and iPhone apps, which are increasingly popular for listeners to discover new podcasts.

Here are the detailed instructions to submit your podcast:

1. Go to http://www.podbean.com. Scroll down to the bottom of the page. Click on “Submit your podcast”.

2. You’ll be directed to the login page. Log into or sign up for a Podbean account (no cost for a free account).

3. Fill in your podcast feed and click on “Submit”. Follow the steps as instructed.

4. Keep the url and your login information for future reference. Your page will automatically update from your podcast feed. You can also get clickable buttons to put on your site.

* Podbean users with Podbean paid plans are automatically in the directory. For Podbean free accounts, you must verify your account first to be included in the directory. The verification steps will appear in your Podbean account’s dashboard 15 days after your account is created. Your podcast will appear in the Podbean Directory within 24 to 48 hours.

If you are already in the Podbean directory but have not yet claimed your listing, simply go to the listing page and click “claim listing” on the left. This will ensure you are notified of comments and other opportunities.

If you wish to delist your podcast from Podbean’s directory and app for some reason, you can contact our Support team any time to do so. Please note, this means your podcast will no longer be available to Podbean app users.
