How do I add my podcast to Spotify?

marcsalot

With the announcement of podcasts being added to Spotify, how do I add mine as an "approved partner"?

It appears they're only taking in shows from big players and ignoring the little guy. Seems like if Spotify really wants to pull some traffic from iTunes, they should include all podcasters.

 

Is there a way for me to submit my shows and get approved?

I wonder if the Spotify artist services team can help you?

Thanks, I'll give them a shout.

I agree. I work for a magazine with 5+M views per month which has a podcast with over 120,000 listens per episode, and I cannot figure out how to submit our podcast.

 

Any help here, mods?

From their official twitter they will not let users submit podcast and will be hand selecting podcast from bigger names only according to their twitter reaponse to me they wont allow you to add your own podcast

One last question: why am I not, in the least bit, at all, surprised?

nwat1993

I Am truly angry with spotify about this. I Editing and Produce a Classic Content Podcast for The HAM Radio Show (HAM 24/7 / Planetplatypus) which is really good content that would be awesome for Spotify to have in the catalog. but they refuse to even consider submittion or moderate to consider if  it is worth to add.  but they won't do that. So am i not going to waste my time and already in talks with the other music service to get things going. I am interested in great radio generated by community of podcaster not the Network B.S fromt he big companys  spotify is trying to push.   If spotify wants our podcast, I wil refuse to have it added, we were not worth it then, way are we now.... 

 

sorry, I see great things coming in the future with the podcasts but spotify is really killing it from the start with only "THE BIG GUYS", there is more than CBS,NBC,ABC,Disney stuff in the world

Right now there is no way to submit podcasts to Spotify, but they are interested in your feedback.

If you would like to be able to submit podcasts to Spotify, give this idea a kudo to show your support:

Any news on this from Spotify? As a producer of a couple podcasts (audio & video), it would be HUGE to be able to list our podcasts/shows on Spotify with such a huge reach.

Same here, it would be great to publish our Soundcloud Channel wich we offer on Soundcloud and also on iTunes as Podcast to Spotify. Is there a way to integrate a feed from Soundcloud or iTunes zu Spotify?

Any news?
Why is it so hard to publish a podcast on Spotify? I bet the little ones wouldn't ask much.
I know I wouldn't. Just being able to publish on Spotify would be great for starters.

Hello:

 

Apologies for the delay, took me some time to locate this again, as I forgot to bookmark the resource the last time someone had a question about getting podcasts on the Spotify service. Spotify has a partnership with this content provider below regarding podcasts getting added to the Spotify service: https://blog.libsyn.com/2016/01/12/how-to-get-your-podcast-into-spotify/

Hi everyone This may change soon due to this ground breaking news. Your prayers may have been answered.

If Spotify wants to exclude the smaller podcasters, I think I'll just exclude them from my podcast listening on principle. This is exactly why podcasting took off...so that anyone could play on the same level as the monopolies.
