I am using PodTrac so I can upload my episodes to iTunes Podcast and when i put my RSS Feed URL it is giving me an error. I contacted them and asked what was wrong and they said

"We cannot see your feed since it loops back upon itself in a complete circle. Do you have a source feed that you are redirecting to another feed? When we ran this through a redirect checker, it looks as if the URL redirects to itself – which is likely causing the redirect loop.

I think this may be a Support ticket item for SoundCloud since you have a SoundCloud feed. The SoundCloud folks are very helpful and they will have a solution for you."

Hey there Gabby,

Thanks for posting on the forum. Jup, that's a loop right there. Not to worry though, here's what you'll want to do:
  1. Log in to your SoundCloud account and head over to
  2. In the "New feed location", make sure to delete the link that is in there. This field only becomes relevant if you decide you want to move to a different host then SoundCloud.
  3. Save your changes.
That's it, the loop is now gone.

Other things that might help get you started:
  • While you're in the settings section, choose your email address in the "Feed email address" field.
  • Also, make sure your profile image on SoundCloud is 1400x1400 px in size. This is a measure that iTunes requires.
Finally, here are the two main resources you'll need when it comes to Podcasting on SoundCloud and on iTunes:

Let me know if you have further questions around this :-)

THANK YOU SO MUCH! this worked! i have another question. So now that Podtrac was able to read my RSS Feed, what do I do now if i would like to upload it to iTunes while still using Podtrac? Do i just submit the SoundCloud RSS Feed to iTunes or do i use PodTrac RSS Feed URL on iTunes?
