Then fill out the email address field and provide a detail of the reason for removal.
Once you’ve completed that, hit submit.

Option #2: Request podcast removal from iTunes using email to podcasts@apple.com

The second option is to email podcasts@apple.com
I’ve tried this a couple of times with the clients I’ve worked with and have had success in getting a person to respond and actually process my request. Based on my email, the response took about five days, which is not bad. You just have to be patient and understand that there’s no specific time frame that you’ll get an answer from them. So if you want to really make sure you got all points covered to reach out to iTunes, check out the third option.
