Apple Podcasts is one of the best ways to get your podcast in front of new listeners! But in some rare occasions, you may want to remove an Apple Podcasts listing. Apple Podcasts makes it easy to remove your listing from the directory.
Warning: Removing your podcast from Apple Podcasts will remove your listing and all of your reviews! There is not a way to restore that once it is removed.
If you still have the Apple ID that you used to submit your podcast to Apple Podcasts, then you can remove the listing directly within Podcast Connect. Just follow these steps to delete the listing:
Now, Apple will mark your podcast to be removed from Apple Podcasts. It is typically removed within 24 hours, but this process can take up to a week!
Then, on the podcast listing page, you'll be able to see all of the episodes for that podcast. Click on the Report a Concern link to file a concern with Apple Podcasts.
This will take you to a new page where you can report a concern with Apple Podcasts. From the dropdown select Remove a Podcast, then put in your email address (we recommend using the email address in your RSS feed if you still have access to it). Then put in a comment about why you would like the podcast taken down!
Click Submit and your request will be sent to the Apple Podcasts team. If they reply, you will want to follow up with them directly via email, [email protected]
