A complete list of new categories in Apple Podcasts

From the autumn of 2019 Apple will introduce a new set of categories for podcasts to be catalogued in the Apple Podcasts directory.

It’s worth noting that you might need to change one or two categories for your podcast within your hosting service as this might affect your podcast’s ability to be discovered within the directory.

Anything italicised is a new or restructured category.
