How to Publish a Podcast
There’s a lot of work that happens before an episode is ready to air, and if you need the steps that lead up to its creation you can read about how I did that in this earlier post. It used to be you needed a distributor to get your material on Spotify, but now anyone can see their material on the platform. You won’t be able to post directly to Spotify, but by using the third-party service you should be able to do this very easily. Since I was making podcasts I used an easy and free site called PodBean. This lets you upload up to 3 episodes per day and then if you’re content with that you could just leave it there and link directly to your published episodes on that site.
However, I wanted to get them on Spotify – so I first needed to create an RSS feed. This took a little bit of Googling but let me save you the trouble – here’s how to do it. It’s actually a very straightforward process that once you know how to do it, it takes 5 seconds. You’ll need to create a Spotify account for the final step, but once you log in you can put your work on the site. Here’s how to submit your RSS Feed in 3 easy steps. The podcast might take a few hours to appear on the site, but that’s it!
