Change Order of Episodes

Episodic podcasts (default)

Specify episodic for stand-alone episodes or when you want your episodes presented and recommended last-to-first. This option also supports seasons, with the newest episode at the top.

The order of your episodes in Apple Podcasts, in your embed players, and on your public Buzzsprout page will reflect the the order of your episodes in Buzzsprout. We organize episodes based on publish date. So to reorder your episodes you will just need to change the publish dates. It’s a really simple process!

  1. Locate the episodes that are out of order
  2. Click the episode you want to edit Change Episode Order

  3. On the right side of the page you will see a publishing box where you can Edit the Publish Date. Schedule Podcast Episodes

  4. Click Save Episode Details

Once you’ve saved the episode, head back to the episodes page and you should see that the episode has been moved in relation to your other episodes. Repeat the steps above for any remaining episodes that are out of order. After a few more edits your episodes should be in the correct order!

Serial podcasts

Specify serial when you want your episodes presented and recommended first-to-last. This option supports narratives, storytelling, thematic, and multiple seasons. Use the season number, episode number, and episode type fields in Buzzsprout to set the appropriate order.

Time to update

Your Buzzsprout public page will update immediately, but iTunes will typically take up to 24 hours to reflect these changes.
