Turning mp3s into Podcast Episodes for iOS/iPhone/Apple iTunes

Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.

I love to listen to YouTubers on the way to and from work (30 minutes walk each). But unfortunately, even when turning the YouTube videos into mp3s — they are not podcasts. You can’t easily stop or jump back 15 seconds.

Unless you simply press “cmd + i” in iTunes, go to “options”, and change the “media kind” to “Podcast”.

Yeah, it’s that fucking easy:

Afterwards, just go to Podcasts on the connected iOS device in iTunes on your Mac and sync the Playlist the Podcast is in. That’s pretty much it.

Took me a few years to find out.
