What does it affect?
Changing your podcast name doesn't affect anything. It will update in Transistor immediately.
Other podcast platforms may take up to 24 hours to pick up your podcast name change.
However, changing your RSS feed URL does have an impact. Transistor will automatically create a redirect from your old feed name to your new feed name. This redirect means there is no impact for existing subscribers who are still using the old RSS feed name. They do not need to resubscribe to the new feed name.
Most podcast platforms will also be able to follow this redirect and continue to pick up new episodes.
However it is recommended that you update your RSS feed on Spotify. Spotify cannot follow redirected feeds, so it's best that they have your new RSS feed name. Follow this guide here to Update your feed on Spotify.
