Importing your content from another host

You can use Anchor's switch page to import existing content into your Anchor account simply by using your RSS feed! 

If your podcast is hosted with one of these providers then Anchor can automatically import your podcast for you:

  • Audioboom
  • Blubrry
  • Buzzsprout
  • Castbox
  • iVoox
  • Libsyn
  • Megaphone
  • Podbean
  • Podomatic
  • Simplecast
  • Soundcloud
  • Spreaker
  • Squarespace
  • Transistor

If you encounter any issues importing from these hosts, please reach out to us here. The switch page may still work with your RSS feed even if your host isn't in this list, however we can't guarantee it nor offer support if you run into any trouble using an RSS feed from an unsupported host. 

Here are some troubleshooting tips if your host is unsupported:

  • Ensure your host host is prepared for increased traffic to your backlog.
    (Especially for creators who have a large episode list) 

  • Ensure that image files for your podcast and episode art are .jpg, .png or .gif and no more than 3000px squared.
  • Ensure audio files are in mp3 format and that all of the links to your audio files are active.
  • Run your RSS feed through a validator such as Cast Feed Validator to spot any potential errors.
