Reporting issues in Apple Podcasts or Apple Podcasts Connect

Apple Podcasts offers support to listeners and podcast creators for all types of issues.


Podcast creators and listeners can send feedback or concerns about specific podcasts to Apple through Report a Concern. All feedback is read by our teams, however, we are unable to respond to each submission individually.

To report a concern, go to a show in Apple Podcasts, tap the ellipses (...), and tap Report a Concern.
