I posted an episode today and it’s not in my Apple Podcasts (iTunes) listing yet?

The Apple Podcasts (iTunes) store listing and what appears in your feed are two different things. A�People that subscribe to your feed in Apple Podcasts will get the new episodes as you post them but the listing at Apple Podcasts can lag by a few days (or up to a week or so) behind your feed. This is normal.

People get the wrong impression that your RSS feed PUSHES to Apple Podcasts. A�It does not.A� Apple Podcasts (when it sees fit) PULLS your feed. A�It asks for your feed when it gets around to it and PULLS your feed to update your listing. A�Your subscribers (even in Apple Podcasts) subscribe to your feed and after that never really touch Apple Podcasts (the service) again. A�They are just subscribed to your feed directly in the Apple Podcasts software. A�As long as when you publish an episode, you get it if you are subscribed, everything is working. A�A�It works the same as every other directory or app.

There is nothing we or you can do to make that faster. A�It takes whatever time it takes and if you want it to go faster you have to go to PodcastsConnect.Apple.Com and refresh your feed manually. (This will still take up to 24 hours)
