Question

iTunes subcategories?


Can anyone say if/when Soundcloud will create a way to do subcategories in iTunes? My podcast is in Religion & Spirituality and it's categorized with tons of actual 'religious' podcasts but my podcast is Spiritual related and not religious at all. It really needs to be categorized under the Spirituality category. Does anyone else have that problem? I created a feed in Feedburner but I don't want to have to change my RSS feed and start over.

Hi there,

Unfortunately, this is not something SoundCloud is planning to release in the near future. If this is subject to change in the future, we'll be sure to update you here on the Community.
Thank you Mathis...can I ask why? It seems like many podcasters would really utilize it. I saw many posts on this forum.
Also, I want to find out if I can have multiple categories for podcasts. It seems like other hosts allow multiple categories
Im sorry Mathis but this is a deal breaker. If this isnt added we will start to look for options to Soundcloud soon. Seems like a realy easy thing to fix?
Now that iTunes and apple have made changes to their interface and way of categorising podcasts, it seems relevant to ad the option for a subcategory in Soundcloud. The medium is booming, but guidance and acces to the podcasts of your specific liking is still an issue and seems to be getting harder. Subcategorising would be very helpfull. And a reason for me to leave Soundcloud and choose another hosting platform as well...
Agreed! We are a mental health podcast, and now that iTunes added a Mental Health subcategory, we would really like to be included. I am really surprised/disappointed that SoundCloud wouldn't be interested in giving their users an option to be included in new categories. We may have to look elsewhere for hosting if it isn't going to be considered as a change.

This is extremely disappointing. I love SoundCloud over Libsyn, but this is a deal breaker. Have there been any updates here? I've published 50 podcasts with Soundcloud and would hate to leave.

Guess I'll be canceling our paid subscription and going to another host. If you refuse to keep up with Apple Podcasts, where the majority of people access our content, it's a real bad look.
