How to Switch from Megaphone to Libsyn Podcast Hosting

Thinking about switching podcast platforms? Well, think about how Libsyn’s reliability and exclusive features can take your podcast to the next level!

Not sure if you want to deal with the hassle of switching podcast platforms?

Good news…It’s easy to switch to Libsyn! Let’s walk you through the steps: 1-2-3

Step 1: Sign Up for a Libsyn Account

Go to the Libsyn signup page to create your account.

Next, pick a plan that suits the needs of your podcast.

Step 2: Import Your Show

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 Megaphone RSS feed URL.

Click Submit.

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.

Step 3: Redirect Your Megaphone Podcast RSS Feed

Unlike some podcast platforms, you can’t redirect your podcast RSS feed from the settings in the dashboard.

Instead, you need to contact Megaphone support directly. You can do this two ways; either works just fine:

Be sure to give the Megaphone team the URL for your old Megaphone feed and your new Libsyn RSS feed URL. They will get back to you with any further instructions and let you know when the podcast RSS feed has been successfully redirected.
