There’s a never ending list of things you need to do to create and promote your podcast. Beyond your fascinating content, you’ve got to publish and make sure it’s out there and accessible to your listeners – all listeners. We’ve made that last part easier for you with our free service, Cast Feed Validator.
This ultimate test checks to see if your podcast RSS feed is working properly – that’s an easy way of explaining what it does, because it really does not much more than that. Podcast directories have requirements to read and play your podcast, and some of them – including Apple – will accept a feed that isn’t actually working the way you want it to.
Run your feed through our test and we’ll tell you what needs improvement and what is flat out broke; quick results for podcast necessities. We took over the service in 2017 knowing it was time for an update.

This isn’t just limited to Blubrry users, any podcaster can check their feed. A properly working directory is better for the entire podcasting community. Take a look at the new site and test your feed here.
