As probably every podcaster already knows, at the end of May, Apple communicated that they will soon require secure podcast feeds as part of publishing podcasts with them.
This means that podcasters who have already submitted their show to Apple Podcasts will need to ensure they are using a secure podcast feed with an SSL certificate and for those of you who plan to submit in the future, you need to make sure you have it set up. If you’re not a techy person this basically means that it is recommended to use a podcast HTTPS RSS feed, with the “S” in HTTPS literally standing for ‘secure’.
What does this mean for you?
We want to make the transition as easy as possible for Spreaker users: in the near future you’ll need to have your RSS Feed secure to be submitted on Apple Podcasts. That’s why we have already made an update on our website which will allow Spreaker users to have their show’s RSS feed directly available as HTTPS. Below we explain how to make the changes.
What do I have to do?
For podcasters who don’t submit to Apple Podcasts yet: you can already get the RSS Feed directly from the CMS or your Show page on the Website since it’s already been updated. It’s that easy.
For podcasters who are already submitting to Apple Podcasts: don’t worry for the time being, the HTTP feed is still working and we are in discussion with Apple to find the best solution for you. We’ll be in touch with more information regarding the transition as soon as we have an update.
