How to Add Podcast to Itunes Playlist

Adding a podcast episode to your iTunes playlist is simple.

All you have to do is subscribe and then drag the file into your playlist!

However, if you’re looking for something more advanced (such as changing the order of episodes or getting rid of certain episodes), here are some tips:

1. Subscribe to the podcast from your iTunes library.

The first step to adding a podcast to your playlist is subscribing.

Subscribing means you will get updates automatically when they are released.

This is different than downloading a podcast, which allows you to listen at any time but also means that you have to manually update each episode yourself as it becomes available.

To subscribe, open iTunes and click on “Podcasts” in the left menu bar under LIBRARY > PODCASTS.

Next, click on one of your favorite shows or scroll through all of them by clicking the magnifying glass icon at the top-right corner of the window and typing what you’re looking for into the search bar (for example: “How To Podcast”).

Once selected, find an episode that sounds interesting from its description text and then clicks on SUBSCRIBE TO THIS SHOW below it—that’s all there is too it!

2. Locate and select the podcast you wish to add to a playlist.

If you already know which podcast episode you’d like to add, then it’s as easy as finding that episode in your iTunes Library and selecting it.

You can do this by clicking one of the buttons—Library, Store, or Search—at the top of your screen.

The button will change depending on what content is available through iTunes at the time:

  1. Podcasts from any source are listed under “Podcasts” in your library if they have been added previously; otherwise, they’ll appear under “Store.”
  2. Purchased music and movies are located under “Music” or “Movies,” depending on what type of content they are respectively.
  3. Other video content (such as old TV shows) is found under “TV Shows.”

3. Click on the “Playlists” menu in your iTunes library.

After step 2, you’ll see a list of all your playlists and podcasts listed under “Library.”

Click on the one that says Podcasts and it should open up the podcast screen with all your subscribed podcasts listed.

4. Create a playlist.

To do this, click the “New Playlist” button in the upper left-hand corner of iTunes and select the “Playlists” menu.

Then, click on the “New Playlist” button and enter a name for your podcast playlist in the text box that appears.

Finally, click OK to save it!

5. Drag and drop the podcast that you want to add to your playlist.

You can also right click on the podcast and select “Add to Playlist”.

6. Right-click on the desired podcast in your iPod’s library, then select “Add Episode To Playlist.”

Select the playlist you want to add it to from the drop-down menu that appears and click OK.

7. Click on the playlists button at the bottom of your iPod’s display.

Click on the playlists button at the bottom of your iPod’s display.

Select the playlist you want to add the podcast too, or if you don’t see it listed as one of your options, click on “other” and select it from there.

8. Select the playlist to which you would like to add the podcast episode.

Click on the Playlist button at the bottom of your iPod’s display, and then choose the playlist to which you would like to add the podcast episode.

The selected playlist appears in blue with a checkmark next to it. Click on “Add” (in green) at the top right corner of this screen if you want to add multiple podcasts simultaneously; otherwise, click on “Done” (in gray) when finished adding podcasts.


Once you have added podcast episodes to an iTunes playlist, they will appear in their own section of the library.

You can now listen to them at any time without having to search through your entire list of downloaded content!
