The Episode I Just Published Isn’t Showing Up in iTunes/Apple Podcasts

Apple routinely checks each podcast RSS feed to detect new episodes as well as metadata or artwork changes.

After 24 hours, if your new episode or content updates don’t appear on Apple Podcasts, sign in to Podcasts Connect and follow these steps:

  1. Click My Podcasts.
  2. Check the Status section to confirm your show is Active. If your show is in a Failed Validation status, troubleshoot the issue and resubmit your feed.
  3. Check the time and date when your show was last refreshed.

For artwork changes, make sure the new image file:

  1. Has a different name than the previous one.
  2. Meets the artwork requirements.

If you’ve confirmed the above items, and it’s been more than 24 hours since your podcast was last refreshed, select Refresh Feed. Podcasts Connect will schedule an update. Please allow up to 24 hours for this process to complete. 

As much as we’d love to help, unfortunately there’s nothing Fireside can do to force a third-party service to refresh your feed.
