Publishing episodes includes uploading media files, setting episodes logos and editing episode description. You can also edit or delete episodes.
Publish a Podcast Episode
The process for uploading an audio or video podcast is the same.
Note: uploading video podcasts is a feature that’s available on Podbean’s Unlimited Plus plans and above.
Here’s how to publish an audio or video podcast.
Log into your Podbean account and navigate to the dashboard, then click the "Episodes" - "Episode List" on the left hand column. At the top right corner, click the green "New Episode" button.
Click "Choose a file to upload" to upload your file for your episode. You can also click "Select from Account" to upload a file that’s already in your Media Manager.
Edit the episode title, episode description and upload the episode logo if you wish.
Click “Publish Now” button to release your episode. Your episode will now be published on Podbean and pushed to any third party directories that you've submitted your podcast to.
Other publishing options:
“Draft”: Click the "Save as a draft" button to save your episode in draft.
“Schedule Episode”: Click the blue arrow next to the "Publish Now" button and Click "Schedule Episode".
Set Episode Logo
While publishing your podcast episode, if you would like to upload custom artwork for a specific episode:
You can upload a new episode image by clicking on the "Choose new image" button or select an image from "Media Manager" by clicking the inverted triangle for the drop-down menu of the files.
If you do not choose an episode image, your channel logo is used as the default.
Edit an Episode
Once you’ve published a podcast episode, you can change the media file, update the episode logo or edit the episode description.
Log into your Podbean account and navigate to dashboard, then click the "Episodes" - "Episode List" on the left hand column.
Click the episode title to edit your podcast’s title, description, podcast file, podcast image, and episode settings.
Once you’ve made your edits, click the "Publish Now" button. You can also click the arrow on the right hand side of the Publish Now button to schedule your episode to re-release at another time and date. Your episode will now be re-published with the changes you’ve made.
NOTE: While these changes should be automatically reflected on your Podbean podcast website and in the Podbean App, your changes may take longer to reflect on the various third party directories. Furthermore, if a listener already has your podcast episode downloaded to their listening device, these changes may also take longer to reflect for them.
Delete an Episode
In the event that you need to remove a podcast episode, you can delete single episodes or episodes in a batch.
From your Podcast Dashboard, click on "Episodes" - "Episode List" on the left hand column.
Select the episodes that you’d like to delete by clicking on the checkbox to the left of the episodes, and click "Delete".
Note: While deleted episodes should be automatically removed on your Podbean podcast website and in the Podbean App, your deleted episodes may take longer to reflect on the various third party directories and in the libraries of listeners who have already downloaded these episodes to their listening devices.
