Google Podcasts is a new way for Android users to discover and listen to the world's podcasts. You can subscribe to any show for free and download episodes for offline listening.
Check if Google has already found your RSS Feed here
Unlike other podcast directories which require you to manually submit your show, Google leans on their search technology to crawl the internet for podcasts to include in their new app. This means that Google should find your podcast and include it in the Google Podcasts app automatically.
To verify that Google has indexed your podcast, insert your Fireside RSS feed URL into the Google Direct Link Generator and click the Generate button.
If Google Podcasts has already added your show you'll see the following message.
If you see that message, you are finished! You have the optional choice to add a Google Podcasts button to your Fireside site. On that page there will be a direct link that you will need to copy and paste into the Google Podcasts Field found under Settings → General → Podcast Apps section.
If your podcast is NOT in Google Podcasts you'll get an error that says "This RSS feed is not currently indexed by Google Podcasts." If that happens, don't worry, just go to the next step.
