Remove Podcast from Apple Podcasts

Apple Podcasts is best way to get your podcast in front of new listeners.

But sometimes you want to remove an Apple Podcasts listing. This might be because you're canceling your podcast, the listing is incorrect and you can't change the RSS feed, or due to a complaint about your podcast. Whatever the reason, Apple Podcasts makes it easy to remove your listing from iTunes and the Apple Podcasts App.

Warning: Removing your podcast from Apple Podcasts will cause you to lose your listing and all of your reviews. If you add it back later you will be starting from scratch.

Remove via Podcasts Connect (recommended)

If you still have the Apple ID that you used to submit your podcast to iTunes, then this is the preferred way to remove a podcast from Apple Podcasts. Your podcast will be associated with your Apple ID even if you submitted it before Podcasts Connect was launched.

  1. Login to Podcasts Connect
  2. Click the podcast that you would like to remove. If you don't see your podcast try logging in with another Apple ID. If you still have issues, try to Remove Apple Podcasts Listing Without Login instructions below.
  3. Click Delete Podcast
  4. Click Delete

Apple will mark your podcast to be removed from Apple Podcasts. It is typically removed within 24 hours.
