How to enable the email address in the RSS feed

At we care about our podcasters' privacy. Email addresses are, by default, not shown in the RSS feed.

The reason why we hide your email in the RSS feed

In the past, Apple Podcasts (and other platforms) required an email address in the podcast's RSS feed for validation and verification purposes. However, because podcast feeds are public, spammers used to scrape these addresses to send unwanted emails.

Over time, new native methods have been implemented directly into the feed for verification purposes. Specially a field that uses the new Podcasting 2.0 namespace tag. Therefore, since the email address is no longer required for such purposes, it could be removed from the feed.

How to enable your email in the RSS feed

Some services still rely on the email address to verify the ownership of a podcast. For these cases, we offer the possibility to temporarily toggle the email address on and off in the RSS feed. And only show it — on demand — when is required to verify ownership of the podcast.

To do it head over the settings page and scroll down to the section "Enable email in my RSS feed":

Type the email you want to enable in the RSS feed and click "Enable email". The email will be visible during the next 12h and it will be automatically hidden again.

However, if you want to hide it again before the 12 hours set by default you can always do it by clicking the "Hide email" button shown in the settings section and on top of your distribution tab.
