Open your podcast app/platform

First, launch the app or platform where your podcast is hosted (or website if you're on a desktop). This could be platforms like Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Castos, etc.


Find and select your episode

From the homepage of your podcast platform, navigate to the specific episode you want to share. If it is your podcast, you can navigate to your podcast page and find the specific episode you want to share by browsing through the list of episodes available on your podcast page.


Locate the share button

Here, you're looking for the share button or option. The location of this button on the podcast page may be different depending on the design of the podcast app. But, this button is typically represented by an icon of like connected triangular dots, an arrow, or the word “share.” You can always find it near the episode title or description.


Choose the option to share to Instagram stories

After you've clicked on the share button, the next step is choosing the option to share to Instagram stories. You may be given multiple sharing options but make sure you select “Instagram Stories.”


Customize the appearance of your story

After selecting Instagram Stories as your sharing option, you can customize the appearance of your story. You can make these edits to reflect the theme of your podcast and maybe add an arrow pointing to the clickable link as shown in the image below;

You can also add stickers, texts, drawings, or any other features available to make your story more engaging.

Pro tip: We suggest you keep the customization minimal to avoid cluttering the look of your story.

Tap the next button on the bottom right corner and click on “share.” Before sharing, you have the option to add the story to your profile highlights or send as direct messages to friends.
