How to Switch from Transistor to Libsyn Podcast Hosting

Thinking about changing podcast platforms? Then, 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? Here’s the good news…Switching to Libsyn is 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 Transistor 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 Transistor 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 Transistor RSS Feed

Log into your Transistor account.

Click on the podcast you want to redirect.

Select Show Settings.

On the dropdown menu, scroll to Advanced Settings.

Type in your new Libsyn RSS feed in the field that says Permanent Redirect (301) of your RSS feed to another URL.

Click Save Changes

Your podcast RSS Feed is now redirected!

It is recommended you keep your Transistor account active for up to 4 more weeks to make sure all changes have taken effect. Still have questions? Visit Transistor’s knowledge base.
