Submitting my podcast to Apple Podcasts (iTunes)

To get a podcast on Apple Podcasts (iTunes), please follow these simple steps:

1. Publish at least one episode with an Apple Podcasts (iTunes) supported file format. You may check how to publish a podcast episode here.

2. Set your Podcast title, description, category, and logo in your bCast account “Settings” page. Your bCast podcast image will be used in iTunes as your podcast cover art.  

The logo image must meet the iTunes specifications: 

  • Cover art must be in the JPEG or PNG file format with appropriate file extensions (.jpg, .png). Be sure the file name is letters, numbers, underscores, or dashes only. Do not include an extra period (e.g. myart.V1.jpeg will fail validation).
  • In the RGB color space with a minimum size of 1400 x 1400 pixels and a maximum size of 3000 x 3000 pixels, 72 dpi. Read more about specifications for podcasts on iTunes

Please refer to here on how to resize and compress your podcast logo.

3. Get your podcast RSS feed by going to your podcast under "overview" by simply copying it.


4. Go to Podcasts Connect 

*Please note that there are sometimes delays with iTunes updating, which we cannot control. If you have subscribers in iTunes, they will get your latest podcast but there may be slight delays in it showing up in iTunes.
