How to Switch from Spreaker to Libsyn Podcast Hosting

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

Wondering how much time and effort goes into changing podcast platforms. Here’s the good news…It’s easier than you think. Easy as 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 Spreaker 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. Need more details? Visit our guide to moving a podcast from Spreaker to Libsyn.

Step 3: Redirect Your Podcast RSS Feed

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 services that alert your subscribers when new episodes come out. Redirecting the RSS feed makes your move to Libsyn seamless.

How to Redirect a Spreaker RSS Feed

Log into your Spreaker account.

Click on your avatar in the upper right hand corner.

Select Dashboard from the dropdown menu.

Hover over the podcast you want to migrate to Libsyn.

Click View & Edit.

Click on RSS Customization on the left side of the screen.

Select Redirect Feed.

Type or paste your new Libsyn feed URL into the New Feed URL text box.

Click the Save button at the bottom of the page.

Your podcast RSS feed is now redirected.

Spreaker recommends keeping your account open until you are sure all the changes take effect. This may take up to four weeks. Still have questions? Visit Spreaker’s knowledge base.
