Within the Podcasts app, you can share both the podcasts and the episodes that you’re listening to. You can share them via email, Facebook, Twitter or even through Message.

Sharing a podcast is super simple. Sharing an episode however is hidden in a couple of steps so that’s what we’re looking particularly at.

How to share Podcasts Title with Podcasts App from iPhone or iPad:

  • Tap on the ShareShare Podcasts on iPhone or iPad

Share Podcasts Episodes from iPhone or iPad

While a lot of people would definitely want to share the podcast they’re subscribed to, I guess a lot of people would want to share a particular episode out of a podcast.

This happens more. So let’s see how you can get that done:

How to share an individual episode out of Podcasts:

  • Open the Podcasts app
  • Tap on My Podcasts from bottom left corner
  • Find the episode from the Podcasts titles that you want to share
  • Now, tap once on the album art so the slider shows up along with the sleep timer and a couple other options.
  • Tap on the ‘Share‘ icon from top right corner. Then choose from Message, Mail, Twitter or Facebook to share episode and you are done!

Share Podcast Episode on iPhone or iPad

When this link is shared and your friend opens it, the thing opens up in the Podcasts app.

So as you can see, the whole thing is super simple. If you’re looking at sharing an episode, make sure you tap on the album icon to reveal the other controls.

  • 1. Nothing happens when tapping on the album art
    2. Sharing from within an episode it does not share the episode. It shares the podcast.

    • 1. On iOS 6, I have to tap on the album art (or any part of it that is) to bring up the overlay that has the share button.
      When you tap the share icon from the Podcast view, it shares the
      podcast but when an episode is playing and you share it from the
      overlay, we could see that the episode was being shared.
