Modified on Tue, 01 Mar 2022 at 05:05 PM

RSS.com allows you to configure your podcast in the way that best suits your needs. For this reason, we present the difference between serial and episodic when configuring the episodes of your podcast.


This is the default setting for your podcast on RSS.com, the episodic setting will display your episodes from newest to oldest. This means that whenever you publish a new episode it will appear at the top of the viewing lists of the platforms, as well as in your RSS.com dashboard.


The Serial order arranges podcast episodes from oldest-to-newest nested within the assigned season. Serial means that the episodes will be played in a sequential order as long as the user sets this.  If you want to change your setup from Episodic to Serial please read this article.
