Understanding the RSS feed’s role
When your show is created on Ausha, an RSS feed (a file containing all your show’s data) is automatically generated by Ausha.
You can find your RSS feed link by going to Settings, then Export RSS.
When you want to broadcast the first episode of your show on a listening platform (Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Deezer, etc.), you must submit your show’s RSS feed to that platform. Each platform checks and confirms your RSS feed – delays vary depending on the platform. Once your RSS feed is confirmed by a platform, your show will be broadcast there.
After your RSS feed is submitted and validated, you won’t have to do anything extra to get your new episodes broadcast. The listening platform will automatically update your podcast’s RSS feed with the new data. When a new episode is added to Ausha (and therefore also added to your RSS feed), it will be broadcast on the listening platform after it scans the RSS feed.
The RSS feed update delays vary from one to several hours depending on the platform.
Note: Thanks to a partnership between Ausha and Deezer and brand-new, innovative technology, Deezer no longer regularly updates RSS feeds for shows hosted on Ausha, but rather Ausha transmits the data to Deezer when there are updates. The update delay is shorter on Deezer and the whole process is more eco-friendly (automated scans are no longer needed).
That’s right – after you submit your podcast’s RSS feed for the first time, you don’t have to do anything else – each new episode will be automatically broadcast on listening platforms! 🥳
How do I broadcast my show on listening platforms via Ausha?
You can set up your show’s broadcast and find your listening links all on one page. 🥳
To set up your show’s broadcast:
Connect to your Ausha account.
In your Ausha account, on the general menu at the top of your screen, select the Settings tab.
In the Settings tab, on the vertical menu on the left, click Broadcast.
Here you’ll find your podcast's dedicated broadcast page for all platforms. From this all-in-one mission control center, you can access a colored window for each listening platform.
For each listening platform on which you’d like to broadcast your podcast, click Broadcast to learn how to configure your broadcast.
Once the broadcast process has succeeded for a given platform, the Broadcast button becomes a Listen link.
Sample broadcast settings:
Legend: In this screen capture, the show’s broadcast is already set up on Spotify and Deezer but still needs configuring for Apple Podcasts, Podcast Addict, TuneIn, Stitcher, Youtube, and SoundCloud.
On Ausha, we help you broadcast widely across all listening platforms. There are three different setup methods:
Broadcast in a just a few clicks: for Spotify, Deezer and Podcast Addict.
Broadcast after completing a setup on the target platform: for Apple Podcasts, TuneIn and Stitcher. For these platforms, we provide step-by-step tutorials in the colored windows to walk you through the entire process to get your show broadcast.
Automatic broadcast: for Google Podcasts, Castbox, Pocket Casts, Breaker, and Overcast.
Don’t worry, for those platforms where everything isn’t completely automated, we help you step-by-step with tutorials in the colored windows (for example, for Apple Podcasts, TuneIn and Stitcher)!
Once these different broadcast configurations have been set up for your chosen listening platforms, everything will be automatic. Every time you upload a new episode, you won’t have to do anything nor do you ever need to configure these broadcast settings again. 🤩
