The Complete Podcast Directory List For 2021

video podcasting

One of the keys to getting more listeners for your podcast, and growing your fanbase is visibility. The more places people can find your show, the more likely it is that you’ll gain new listeners and fans. 

Submitting your podcast to the major directories can put your show in front of millions of new listeners.

For all podcast directories, you’ll need your podcast’s RSS feed. If you don’t have one, you can create a podcast RSS feed here.

Once you have your RSS feed, copy it to your clipboard, Word, or Notepad. Some directories also ask for your show’s title, description, and the email address associated with your podcast

Submit Your Podcast to the Most Popular Podcast Directories

1. Apple Podcasts: We recommend adding your show to this directory first because it can take the longest to be approved. You’ll need an Apple ID before you can submit your podcast for review.

2. Google Podcasts: Once you login with a Gmail account, you can visit the Google Play Podcast Portal, and click the button that says “ADD A PODCAST.” Follow the prompts, and then wait for your show to be reviewed. This can take as little as 24 hours, or up to a week.

3. Spotify: Create an account, link your RSS feed, and wait for approval. This can take up to five days. IMPORTANT – you need to have uploaded at least one episode to your podcast host. Until you do so, Spotify will not be able to find any episodes and will reject your feed.

4. Stitcher: Create a content provider profile, click “Add Show,” add your RSS Feed and show details. Then, submit and wait for approval.

5. TuneIn (Also adds your podcast to Amazon Alexa): Go to their email submission form, fill it out, and hit “SEND EMAIL.” At the risk of sounding like a broken record, you’ll then wait for approval.

6. Head on over to the Podcasters page on and click the “Submit Your Podcast” button. From here, you’ll need to either log in or create an account. 

7. Pandora For Podcasters. Use your Pandora account to log in and submit your podcast. If you don’t have an account with Pandora, you can register for free here.

8. Once you arrive at, hit the “Publish My Podcast” button. Enter your podcast’s RSS Feed and click the “NEXT” button. At this point, you will receive a confirmation email from Deezer with a verification code.
