UPDATE: Yahoo! has shut down Pipes, which was key to this process. Thus, this method will no longer work. Please subscribe to the blog, podcast, and email newsletter for future updates on a new method.
I don’t recommend SoundCloud as the primary home for your podcast, but it’s a good additional distribution channel. Here’s how to automatically publish your podcast episodes from your podcast RSS feed to your SoundCloud account, using Yahoo! Pipes and If This Then That (IFTTT).
1. Run your podcast RSS through Yahoo! Pipes
Visit the Yahoo! Pipe I created for you and enter your podcast’s title, website, and podcast-only RSS URL. Click Run Pipe. Then, right-click on “Get as RSS” and copy the target URL.
Optionally clone the pipe into your own Yahoo! account for advanced editing and control.
2. Connect Yahoo! Pipes and SoundCloud with IFTTT
Replace the RSS URL in the first field with the feed URL you copied from Yahoo! Pipes.
You could click “Add Recipe” right now, or customize the fields, especially the tags field to include any global tags that apply to every episode of your podcast.
When you’re finished, click “Add Recipe.”
3. Publish and wait
The process is now setup! Just publish new podcast episodes and they will automatically publish to SoundCloud from this time forward. (Old episodes won’t be published for you.)
