A few days ago Apple sent an email to all Apple Podcast users. The email informed that there will be changes in the categories of Apple Podcasts.
Some categories will disappear, others will be renamed and there are also new categories. Therefore we will have to update the categories from our podcasts at the time of the update.
In this link (official, Apple web) you can see all the updated list of categories of Apple Podcasts.
As you can see in the official list, the category tree is updated with lot of new categories. Apple has a good database of podcasts (more than 500.000). This changes will do the visibility of the podcasts better. Apple is removing lot of categories that are irrelevant and creating new categories that are shining in the podcasting world. One of this new categories is True Crime, a widely used topic with some of the most listened to podcasts.
We believe this change is welcome and will enhance the already wonderful Apple Podcasts.
