How do I distribute my podcast to apps?

There are a few main directories you'll probably want to submit your podcast RSS feed to. On your podcast settings page, you can find a list of these external players.

You'll need to:

1. Copy your Substack RSS feed URL.

2. Submit your podcast to an external podcast player– find the direct link on your podcast settings page.

3. Once submitted, enter your new external player URL on the podcast settings page. When you publish an episode, this URL will be shown on the episode post .

Note: Your RSS URL won’t be accepted until you publish an episode. Create your first episode announcing your podcast or publish your first episode before submitting your feed to players.

Once you’re approved by Apple, listeners will be able to find your podcast in pretty much any podcast directory, because most podcast apps just scrape from Apple.

If you manually added your Substack feed to Spotify for Podcasters, follow the steps here to remove your podcast. If you synced your feed to Spotify directly on Substack, head to your podcast settings page and select "Disconnect from Spotify". To remove your podcast distribution from Apple Podcasts, the steps can be found here.
