Had this problem. Pieced together comments here.

Solution:
In your profile dropdown, go to Tracks.
Select all your tracks (even private).
In Edit Tracks dropdown, go to Permissions.
Check "Include in RSS Feed" box.

WHY ISN'T THIS CHECKED BY DEFAULT, SOUNDCLOUD??


THANK YOU!!!!! - and seriously though, that should be the default setting for public tracks. Thanks my man

Thank you, thank you!
Hello! please help...Trying to enter RSS to upload my podcast.
Says, no episodes exist in your feed? helpppppp.......
I had the same problem, and I solved following these steps:
disclaimer: my page is in Italian language, so the English version could be different.
-profile (up/right);
-tracks


-tick all the tracks
-modify all the tracks


-authorizations
-include on the rss feed


-save
can I have unlimited rss feeds?
Same problem here 😞
I'm having the same issue. I submitted another podcast, using Spreaker and never had this issue, yet like so many here I get an error from iTunes telling me that 'No Episodes Exist in Your Feed'.

It seems that if this many people are running into the same issue, you might have an issue with the data you're pushing to iTunes. Please let me know what you've done to resolve this issue as we'd like to get our feed working.
Hi, I am having the same issue I believe, unless I am doing something wrong. I have 6 episodes yet itunes is telling me I have none. can you please help me fix this?!
If you're still having this issue, as I did for what seemed like forever, try this:

Click the down arrow on your profile and choose the option "Tracks." Make sure your tracks are added to a playlist, and then click the "Edit Tracks" button and choose "Permissions." ENABLE ALL OPTIONS IN THIS AREA, specifically the "Include in RSS feed" option, then click the "Save" button.

Also, the image that Apple's podcast verification system is looking at is the avatar you've chosen for your page, not the icon you've used for the playlist or track! It took me FOREVER to figure this out, and only realized it when I downloaded the image Apple showed me it was trying to use. I continually got the error regarding the image specs, and when I checked the image Apple was trying to use, it was clear it was using a different image than I thought it needed!
Hey!

I am having the same issue. I get an error that reads- No episodes exist in your feed.

When I actually have 3 episodes. Can you please help?
Mathis im having the same issue. I fixed the problem with my profile picture but its still saying i have no episodes in my feed. Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
I'm having a similar issue. iTunes Connect keeps saying "No episodes exist in your feed" when I try to validate my RSS URL.

Please Help.

Hi there,

Hmm, is this a persistent issue for you, or did you find the solution in the meantime? I've just looked into your RSS feed and your episodes are showing up properly now, so iTunes shouldn't complain about that.

Let us know if this needs further investigation :-)

Cheers
Mathis

I'm having this same problem. My picture shows when I test the feed but no episodes show up. Then when I try and submit the feed it says, "This feed has no episodes."
This was helpful for me too-- I had to enable downloads in the show's settings.

Hey Mathis, Ive enabled my uploads to be in my RSS feed but itunes is still bugging about me not having any episodes. What now?
I have uploaded one episode, and tried validating it for iTunes, and am also getting the error message, "No episodes exist in your feed." I've made my feed public, and taken the steps provided in the podcast troubleshooting section. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Having a problem, keeps saying about the profile picture, even though mine is a good size and a JPEG, then says has to be hosted on a server that allows HTTP head requests. Help please, wanna connect sound clouds to iTunes
My solution was actually in the sizing of the pictures, I had uploaded a new picture with the proper size, but didn't apply it to any of the episodes, so those episodes still had the wrong picture size, once i changed that it was no problem. Hope that helps!
Hello, I too am experiencing this problem. Any fixes/solutions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
