Expanded Podcast Marketing Opportunities with Social Scheduling
The brand new podcast social promotional feature is a powerful upgrade for our $20 and up account holders. The workflow changes your current publishing workflow but provides an impressive new suite of features that will make you consider the need for third-party services.

Podcast 2.0 Namespace Locked Tag Support
For those creators looking forward to Libsyn’s support of the Podcast 2.0 namespace tags, we are excited to share progress through support for the Locked Tag.
The Locked Tag can help reduce the possibility of your feed being imported or copied into another location without your knowledge. Libsyn’s support includes enabling a lock on your feed, and honors the lock when someone tries to import a feed into the Libsyn system. Read more about tags and episode publishing on Libsyn.
If you don’t know what the Podcast 2.0 Namespace is, here is an article that can help you out.
The Podcast 2.0 namespace is essentially a grouping of tags, and the Podcast Index is a new directory that uses them among other apps and directories.
Ensuring Valid Feeds with New Permalink Parameters
Every episode gets a permalink, you might not have noticed, and that is ok! For many accounts, Libsyn populates this link automatically to the preferred URL in order to generate a valid feed. The permalink will now default to your podcast page URL with new episode creation to align with RSS specifications.
Don’t worry; you can still use a custom URL if the podcast page isn’t for you!
New URLs – No New Work
This update also includes an update to the RSS and Podcast Page URL that addresses the removal of the previously required show slug for account creation.
‼️ You do not need to update anything.
