Pinecast feeds are cached for up to 15 minutes. That means that a published episode may not appear in your RSS feed for up to 15 minutes after its scheduled publish time. After fifteen minutes, any newly published episodes or changes to your feed will take effect.

This policy affects the following:

  • Metadata on your podcast (name, description, etc.)
  • Podcast cover artwork
  • Newly published episodes
  • Updates to episode metadata (title, show notes, etc.)
  • Updates to episode audio

Note that directories update your feed as infrequently as once every 24 hours (Apple Podcasts, Pocket Casts, etc.). The caching policy described here only affects subscribers; directory listings and other feed consumers may cache your feed themselves for longer than 15 minutes.


Users of the Hi-fi Add-on may apply for an exemption to this policy. Please reach out to us directly.
