Moving Your Podcast From Soundcloud 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 Soundcloud 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 Soundcloud. 

  1. Log into SoundCloud and select Settings
  2. Select the Content tab
  3. Paste your new Fireside RSS Feed URL** in the “Subscriber redirect” field
  4. Save your changes

Your redirect is now set up! We typically recommend keeping the redirect (and your podcast) active on Soundcloud 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. Soundcloud lets you keep your 301 redirect in place indefinitely for zero cost.
