Note: Apple requires a square jpg or png file at least 1400x1400 (no larger than 3000x3000) in RGB color format (72 DPI) for your podcast artwork.

Apple Podcasts The most popular podcast directory is Apple Podcasts. Most podcast players will allow users to subscribe to any podcasts found in the Apple Podcast directory. This means anyone will be able to search for your church in most any podcast player and subscribe to your podcast.

You can submit a podcast through Podcasts Connect. You can learn about submitting your podcast to Apple from their Podcasts Connect guide.

Other Podcast Directories You may also want to submit your podcast to other popular directories. You can find specific help below:
