If you're planning to switch your podcast to Spotify.
When you look at moving your podcast from one location to another it is because of one of a few different reasons:
- Your RSS feed is based on your media host and you’re switching hosting platforms. An example of this would be moving from Podcasts to Spotify when you don’t have a WordPress site and will be using your Castos based feed.
- Your RSS feed is based on your website (with a plugin like Seriously Simple Podcasting) and you’re moving website URLs. Such as moving from myoldsite.com to mynewsite.com
