Moving Your Podcast From Libsyn 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 Libsyn 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 Libsyn. 

  1. Log into Libsyn and navigate to your Dashboard
  2. Select 'Destinations'
  3. Select 'Libsyn Classic Feed'
  4. Click 'Advanced Options' at the bottom of the page  
  5. Paste your new Fireside RSS Feed URL in the 'Redirect Feed to this Web Address' field

Your redirect is now set up! We typically recommend keeping the redirect (and your podcast) active on Libsyn 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. Libsyn will automatically keep your Libsyn RSS feed and the redirect active for 30 days after you cancel your account.
