iTunes is the biggest podcast directory.
It's the directory that many other apps use to discover and list podcasts.
Each podcast can get listed under three total, separate, categories which is recommended for maximizing reach and allowing more listeners to find your podcast.
Following are all Apple Podcasts' categories as seen on Apple's website!
Finally, be sure to select the best title and description, as well as category combination for your podcast, through your podcast hosting platform's dashboard, to ensure maximum SEO and discoverability!
