Google Podcasts has shut down and YouTube Music is stepping up as the new platform to share your audio adventures. This guide is here to help you navigate this switch, migrating your audio-only podcast to YouTube Music using RSS feeds. If you already have your podcast setup as a playlist in YouTube and need to designate that as a podcast, use this step-by-step process instead: Set an Existing YouTube Playlist as a YouTube Podcast
