Changing the episode type/numbering system of my show

Depending on the kind of content in your show, you may want to change the way its episodes are numbered and the order in which they’re shown to listeners.

To change this setting head to the ‘Show Settings’ tab on your show's dashboard:


And then scroll down to ‘Show type’


There are 3 options here:

  • Episodic
    Your show has standalone episodes, or you want its episodes to be shown last to first, without a numbering system. The listener will be served the most recently published episode first.
  • Episodic with numbered episodes
    Each episode has an episode number (and an optional season). Episodes are ordered from last to first. The listener will be served the most recently published episode first.
  • Serial
    Where supported, episodes are recommended first to last. This option is best for narratives, storytelling, thematic, and shows with multiple seasons. The listener will be served the earliest episode first, guiding them through the story from the start.


It's entirely up to you to choose whichever one you feel suits your show style the best.
