Podcast Growth Checklist

Podcasting is a growing medium, and to grow an audience, you should be prioritizing how to reach as many people as possible. The most impactful way to grow an audience is to publish and upload a podcast across an array of podcast directories. Which is why I am energized to share this list of 50+ Podcast Directories I think you should be aware of!

From podcast aggregators big and large, your show should be available "anywhere" people consume podcasts. That’s why we recommend publishing and distributing your podcasts across a wide array of podcast directories. From independent directories like Goodpods to major platforms like Spotify, don’t leave any stone unturned by reaching every podcast listener possible.

Ready to start submitting your podcast to following directories today? Here's a checklist to make your next few steps easier:

1. You will need the RSS feed link associated with your podcast (usually provided to you by your podcast hosting provider). Need help finding your RSS link?
2. You will need access to the email address listed as the contact email address in your Podcast Feed Settings to validate ownership of your podcast on each directory.
3. Some directories will require you to create a unique user account, others will allow you simply to drop in the Feed URL. Apple Podcasts requires an iTunes account.
4. Click on each directory below and see if your podcast is listed or needs to be added!
