NPR One: How do I add my podcasts in Core Publisher?

Podcasts in NPR One are intended to be long-form, searchable content that has more evergreen value than a typical newscast or local segmented audio story.

For Core Publisher users:

Reminder: only your primary (1st) piece of audio in your post will be sent to your podcast URL. 

When adding podcast links from Core Publisher for NPR One, we recommend using your program podcast links instead of your standard topic and category podcast links, because program posts  have a recognizable identity in a way that your standard topic and category podcast links don’t. It is likely you will want to enter pieces from topic and category pages as segmented content, not podcasts. 

Using your program page allows you to customize ways for people to connect with your podcast. 

Under the Podcasts & RSS tab you also can customize your podcast title, description and artwork for external players. 

For your category/topic/tag content, you should use the "Send to NPR One" flag on the individual posts. This will add your content into the local segmented audio bucket, which typically includes short audio pieces.
