Read our article first 👉 How do I get my podcast on Overcast? 👈
Once you have successfully submitted your podcast to Overcast, you can then search for your listening link on this directory to share it to your listeners! 🚀
Here are the steps to follow ⬇️
1/ To get started, you must first get the Apple Podcasts listening link for your show
💡 Overcast is a platform that makes a copy of the Apple Podcasts catalog and automatically distributes the content.
Your Overcast listening link will therefore be based on your Apple Podcasts link.

2/ Thanks to the collection of your listening link on Apple Podcasts, you will now be able to identify what is called the "ID" of your show on Apple Podcasts.
🍏 The ID is the identity number of your show on the Apple Podcasts directory.
The ID of your show on Apple Podcasts is made of a sequence of numbers that you will find in the link/url of the listening page of your podcast on Apple Podcasts.
💡 All podcast listening links are made up this way on Apple Podcasts:
It is this sequence of numbers, at the very end of the url, following the letters "id" that will compose the ID of your show on Apple Podcasts.
💜 For example, the Apple Podcasts listening link of the Ausha team podcast "Tips" is the following: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/tips-how-to-grow-your-podcast/id1632601800
So here, the ID of our Tips podcast on Apple Podcasts will be 1632601800 👈
3/ Then add the ID of your show on Apple Podcasts to the generic link that all podcasts on Overcast will have.
💡 Here's how the listening links on Overcast are set:
https://overcast.fm/itunes0123456789 where 0123456789 is the podcast ID on Apple Podcasts.
🛠 In order to know your listening link on Overcast, you'll simply have to add the Apple Podcasts ID of your show (see part 2 of this article) at the end of the Overcast generic link (after the word "itunes"):
💜 For example, we saw in the previous part that the Apple Podcasts ID of the Tips podcast created by the Ausha team was: 1632601800
Therefore, by adding the Apple ID of the show to the generic link by Overcast, we get the link to listen to the show on this directory: https://overcast.fm/itunes1632601800 👈
And there you have it, you now know how to get the link to your podcast on Overcast! 🥳
