My new podcast being hosted on Soundcloud is now on iTunes but only the first episode is listed in iTunes instead of the 2 hosted on Soundcloud. It's been 48 hours since i uploaded the 2nd episode to Soundcloud, so shouldn't it be in the RSS feed already? The RSS feed is http://feeds.soundcloud.com/users/soundcloud:users:63990908/sounds.rss

Hi there,

Thanks for getting in touch about this. I've looked into this from here and both episodes are showing up in my iTunes properly. To see if a track on SoundCloud is included, you can look into its edit mode under the "Permissions" tab (you'll get there by clicking the small pen icon under the waveform).

Also, when you copy and paste your RSS URL into the address field of your browser and hit enter, you'll see your RSS in "text form" basically.
In there, each episode will show up as an <item> - if it is in there, iTunes should pick it up.

Just in case, here are two great resources for Podcasting on SoundCloud and on iTunes:-)

Hope this helps.

P.S.: That was a lovely typo in the conversation title. We should all start using "ipisodes" for when our podcast episodes come to iTunes 😉
