Block Your Podcast from Podcast Directories

Want your public podcast removed from distribution quickly from podcast directories like Apple Podcasts, Google, and Spotify? Use Block from Podcast Directories.


This will not delete your podcast from your Castos dashboard. This will block directories from ingesting your RSS feed. You may have to re-submit this podcast to these platforms if and when you want to remove the Block This Podcast option.

Deleting a podcast from your Castos Dashboard may not remove it as soon as expected from podcast directories the podcast is currently distributing through. This is where the block option comes in handy.

From Settings → Danger Zone, click Block This Podcast:

That's it. Block This Podcast will add the <itunes:block>yes</itunes:block> tags to your RSS feed, which prevents podcast directories like Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, and Spotify from ingesting it and will then remove it from their catalogues.

From Google Podcasts Manager Help documentation, this should occur within a day on Google Podcasts.
