While this directory doesn't offer podcasting stats like Stitcher, Spotify, and Apple Podcasts, it reaches a wide range of listeners, and we think podcasters benefit from having their content on the platform.

All you need for iHeart's podcast submission process is your show's RSS feed URL and at least one published episode. Follow these four steps to become a content provider so iHeart users can find and stream your show!

Step #1 Copy your RSS feed from your Buzzsprout dashboard

If you host your podcast on Buzzsprout, log into your account, go to the Directories tab, and select Get Listed underneath the iHeartRadio icon.

Copy your podcast's RSS feed link and select Go to iHeartRadio's Website to fill out the site's podcast submission form.

Step #2 Fill out the podcast submission form

Note: iHeartRadio removed the Podcast Publisher field, so you no longer have to select your podcast hosting service to get listed in the directory.

Enter your email and podcast title, and paste your RSS feed into the required field. 

Scroll down to review the platform's terms and services, check the boxes, and click Submit!

The page automatically refreshes after you submit a show, which makes it easy to submit several podcasts at once.

Step #3 Give Buzzsprout your iHeart URL

Once your show  is approved, iHeart will email you with a link to your show's website URL. 

Copy the link and paste it into Step #4 on your dashboard so we can link to your show from your Buzzsprout website!

Step #4 Wait for approval!

As with most directories, it can take anywhere from a few days to a couple of weeks for your show to appear in iHeartRadio's search results.

Once it's listed, the directory uses your RSS feed to display each new podcast episode you publish automatically — you don't have to lift a finger!
