  • In the Get info window, go to options tab.
  • In the media kind drop down menu, select music and click OK and this trick here allows you to tell iTunes that these podcast episodes aren’t podcasts; they are music files. iTunes will then treat them as such, and bring them to your Music library.
  • Now the podcasts should now show on your Music library, plug your iPhone to your computer through USB cable and sync your music library and you no need to sync all the music library if you don’t want to and also you can select sync files manually. Once synced, the podcast should now be in your music application on your iPhone.


  • Now on your iPhone open the music application, go to the playlists tab and create a new playlist. After creating new playlist, the music app lets you browse your library to add track to it.
  • To sync the playlist with Apple Watch, Go to Apple Watch application on your iPhone >> Music >>Synced Playlist >> Podcasts. Apple Watch has to be charging in order to sync music from your iPhone to your Watch. It will take time to sync depending up on file size.


  • That’s it, once you’re done you can enjoy podcasts directly from your watch and if you have paired your Watch with Bluetooth headset, you can now listen to these podcasts on your device with out iPhone.
