Whether you just started a new podcast or are looking to grow your audience, being in the best podcasting directories will make your show more visible to potential viewers.

Where to Submit Your Podcast [Infographic]

Ranked in the order of where my shows are seeing the largest audiences, below is a list of the best podcast directories (a.k.a. podcatchers) to submit your RSS feed. itunes

iTunes – Still the number one place podcasts are found. iTunes is the first place you should submit your podcast. Watch this video on how to submit your show to the iTunes store.

Stitcher – A mobile podcast app, Stitcher is on the rise with lots of podcasts being consumed by its users. They’re also leading the charge to get podcasts into the car (their app now works natively inside some BMW’s).

Google Play Music – While not currently available to podcast listeners, podcast producers can submit their RSS feeds now. With native support for Android devices and hopefully some strong marketing by Google, this directory is likely to become the most popular place to find podcasts behind iTunes.

Miro – The open-source podcatcher. Available for users on most major operating systems (Mac, Windows, Linux).

TuneIn – A blend of terrestrial radio, music and podcasts, TuneIn Radio provides users with a wealth of audio content.

Submitting here will also make your podcast available on the Amazon Echo.

Submitting your show to all of these directories will grow your podcast by making it available to more people searching for content they enjoy at the place they are already consuming podcasts.

How To Use WordPress and Feedburner to Create a Podcast Ready RSS Feed (I NO Longer Recommend Using FeedBurner)

UPDATE: I no longer recommend the use of FeedBurner. It’s old tech that easily breaks and is no longer necessary IMO. To create a valid, podcast ready RSS feed, my recommendation is to use Libsyn.com or host with blurry.com and use the PowerPress plugin with WordPress. If for some reason you find yourself having to use FeedBurner, maybe you are using WordPress.com for your website, then this tutorial will help with that.

Best viewed in full screen mode. Press play then select 720p HD version in the bottom right of the video player and then view full screen.

In this tutorial I show you how to create a podcast ready RSS feed using either wordpress.com or your own installation of wordpress. I combine the power of wordpress and its ability to create as many feeds as you want, along with Feedburner to make a valid RSS feed for your podcast.


Part 2

Using WordPress and Feedburner to feed your podcast allows you a lot of control over what is in your feed and how your feed will appear on podcast directories such as itunes, Zune, Miro and anywhere else you submit your podcast.

On this episode, Vincent, host of This Week in Virology, calls in to talk about his mix-minus setup. Grant wants to know about slow download speeds from files hosted on blip.tv and I talk about having a plan to stay connected to your audience if one or more of your broadcasting channels goes down or gets shut off.
