Can I distribute my podcast through Spotify?

Can I distribute my podcast through Spotify?

I host my podcast at Podbean and currently distribute through iTunes, Google Play and YOuTube.

How do I do the same through Spotify?

Thanks.

https://artists.spotify.com/ provides your starting point to get into Spotify.

Another site you might want to consider for distributing your podcast: SoundCloud.com

It's more aimed at music, but you can share stuff there very easily.

Podbean does not yet work with SoundCloud, but Spotify, it does.

I have no idea what to do next, on Spotify. As a Podcaster, is that considered "Music"? Am I considered an Artist?

The instructions are about music distribution, rights, etc. In my case, I have no such worries, as I own the podcasts.

Can you point me to the next step on Spotify?

Hi newbieweb,
I was able to poke around the link David Favor provided and found some instructions on getting your Podbean podcast listed on Spotify.

You should be able to go to your Podbean account and go to Settings -> Social Share -> Connect to Spotify.

There is some fine print such as you need to have an unlimited or above hosting account with Podbean, and you can have automatic uploading to Spotify once you have 5 episodes published.

Hope this helps!
Martin
