Moving Your Podcast From Transistor to Fireside

Switching to Fireside is easy! First you will need to log into Fireside and click 'Import a Podcast'.  Fireside Podcasts all get a URL like mypodcast.fireside.fm. You can customize the mypodcast prefix using the field provided then click 'Next'. Paste your old Transistor RSS Feed URL* into the field provided and click 'Next'. Complete the following two steps then click 'Finish'. Once you have checked that your episodes have been successfully imported into Fireside you will then need to set up the redirect from your old host Transistor. 

  1. Log into Transistor and select the show you'd like to move to Fireside
  2. Select "Show Settings" and scroll down to the "Advanced Settings" dropdown
  3. Paste your new Fireside RSS feed URL** in the field titled "Permanent redirect (301) of your RSS feed to another URL"
  4. Save your changes

Your redirect is now set up! We recommend keeping the redirect (and your podcast) active on Transistor for at least 30-60 days after you've completed the steps above. This is to ensure all platforms catch the change as some platforms can be slower to update than others.
