As probably every podcaster already knows, Apple announced in late May that it would soon require secure podcast feeds in order to post podcasts with them.

This means that podcasters who have already submitted their podcast to Apple Podcasts need to ensure that they are using a secure podcast feed with an SSL certificate. For those of you who are planning to broadcast a podcast in the future, you need to make sure you have it set up above. Basically, if you’re not a technician, it means that it is recommended that you use a podcast HTTPS RSS feed, with the “S” in HTTPS literally meaning “safe”.

what does that mean to you?

We want to make the transition as easy as possible for Spreaker users: in the near future, your RSS feed will need to be secure so it can be submitted to Apple Podcasts. For this reason, we’ve already released an update on our website that will allow Spreaker users to make the RSS feed of their podcast directly available as HTTPS. In the following we explain how to make the changes.

What should I do?

For podcasters who have not yet submitted Apple podcasts: You can already get the RSS feed directly from the CMS or your podcast page on the website as it has already been updated. As simple as that.

For podcasters who already submit podcasts to Apple: For now, don’t worry, the HTTP feed is still working and we’re discussing 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.
