Question

How do I enlist my podcast into multiple categories in Itunes?

I was told I could use FeedBurner and that allows me to list upto 5 categories. Then, I can submit the Feedburner link to ITunes. Well, from what I have read, ITunes only picks up the first category from FeedBurner. So the question remains, how do I get my podcast to show up in different categories (Health, Society and Culture etc.)? I've seen podcasts on ITunes that show up in many categories. Thanks for your help!

You can technically add multiple iTunes categories to your podcast RSS feed. But your show will only be listed in the first category selected. If you have a couple extra categories, and Apple wants to manually feature your show in a category, they may choose to feature you in one of the secondary categories instead of the primary category you've selected. Overall, I'd advise you to stay away from Feedburner. It's old technology that has its fair share of problems and it just creates an extra layer between you and your audience.
