Formatting your show notes

Podcasts hosted with Spotify

Use the rich text editor in Spotify for Podcasters to get your episode descriptions (also known as show notes) just right.

You need to add a description when you create a new episode.

To edit an existing episode's description:

  1. Go to Episodes
  2. Select the episode you want to edit.
  3. Select Details.

You can use the rich text editor to add:

  • Bold text
  • Italicized text
  • Bulleted lists
  • Numbered lists
  • Links

Or toggle the HTML switch to write your own tags.
