Libsyn offers reliable podcast hosting with plenty of helpful features to take your podcast to the next level.
But, is it hard to switch podcast platforms? No…Not at all! Easy as 1-2-3.
Go to the Libsyn signup page and set up your account.
Next, pick a plan that suits the needs of your podcast.
Now that your account is ready, it’s time to bring the show files over to Libsyn. (Don’t worry…We do all the heavy lifting.)
Get started by going to the Settings section.
Click on Feed & Sync Import.
Once the window pops up, select One Time Import.
Type in your current Anchor RSS Feed URL.
Depending on how many files your podcast has and how large they are, this may take a bit. Go for a walk or start planning your next batch of podcast content. We will let you know when the import is complete. Need more details? Visit our guide to migrating a podcast from Anchor to Libsyn.
People enjoy your podcast. They want to know when new episodes come out (and listen to your old ones). It’s time to make sure Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and all your other digital distribution platforms can find your new podcast host.
Your podcast RSS feed connects your content to these platforms and they alert your subscribers when new episodes come out. Redirecting the RSS feed makes your move to Libsyn seamless.

Log into your Anchor account at https://anchor.fm/login.
Click Settings at the top right of your screen.
Click Podcast Availability.
Scroll down to RSS Distribution.
Type your new Libsyn RSS feed into the Redirect URL field.
Anchor recommends giving it about a week for the redirect to fully take effect, so keep your Anchor account for at least that week after switching to Libsyn.
