What important information is in my receipt email?

Your receipt email not only contains your receipt, but it will also contain your link to your new podcasts, your link to the Behind-The-Scenes videos, and a link to this instruction page in case you want to review this information again. So do make sure you open, read, and save that email.

How do I find my new podcasts in my Podcast App?

You can find them wherever your other podcasts are in that same app.

For Apple Podcasts, you can find your new podcasts by going to: “Library” > “Shows”


How do I load other episodes from the same new podcast?

You may notice that your new podcast only has one episode. This episode was auto-loaded for you when you added the podcast to your podcast player.

To access all the other episodes, look for a link in your podcast app to “All Episodes”, “All”, or something similar.

For Apple Podcasts, you can find all the episodes to one of your new podcasts by going to: “Library” > “Shows” > Tap on new podcast > “See All Episodes”


What Podcast Apps will I be able to select and use from my browser window?

If using an Apple iPhone/iPad, then you will see the following options: Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, Pocket Casts, Overcast, Castro, Downcast.

If using an Android device, then you will see the following options: Spotify, Google Podcasts, Pocket Casts, & other options

If using a Computer/Laptop, then you will see the following options: Spotify, Google Podcasts, iTunes


What additional Podcast Apps will work with my new premium podcasts?

In addition to the Podcast Apps mentioned above, the Podcast Apps below will also work.

Additional Podcast Apps that can be used on Apple iPhone/iPad include: RadioPublic, PodCruncher

Additional Podcast Apps that can be used on Android Devices include: RadioPublic, Podcast Republic, Podcast Addict, BeyondPod, Doggcatcher, Player FM, Podkicker, AntennaPod, and Simple Podcatcher.

The downside of using one of these additional Podcast Apps is that it will take a little more work. Here are the basic steps.

  1. If you don't have it already, download the desired podcast app to your device.

  2. Go to your receipt email and click the "View Podcasts" link as shown in Step #1 above.

  3. Go to your browser window view as shown in Step #2 above. Under the podcast apps shown in Step #2, your unique premium podcast url will be displayed (not shown in the image above). Copy this url.

  4. Open up your podcast app and look for where you can enter a podcast url. Look for “add rss url”, "add feed url", "add a show by url", “add podcast manually”, or something similar.

  5. Enter your premium podcast url and your new podcast should now be in that podcast app.


Which Podcast Apps won’t work with my new premium podcasts?

Although this may change in the near future, the following Podcast Apps don’t currently allow premium podcasts: Google Music, Stitcher, Pandora, TuneIn, and iHeartRadio.

Podbean and Castbox are not recommended because they may not work properly with premium podcasts.


How exactly does the membership/support work?

When you make a pledge you will be able to access the podcasts. You will continue to have access to the podcasts for as long as you are an active supporter. When you decide to end your support you won't be able to access the podcasts anymore. That is not a very technical answer. How the tech wizards actually do that is sparkly voodoo magic to me.


How do I stop any future charges/payments?

You can stop all future charges by canceling your support/membership. This will also end your access to all of the premium podcasts.

Here are the steps:

  1. Go to: https://silk.memberful.com/account

  2. Put in your email (the one you signed up with)

  3. Put in your password (or use the send email link option)

  4. Click "Subscriptions" in the list of options

  5. Click "Turn Off Auto-renew" and "Yes, please"

  6. Done!


Is there a way to download the mp3 files of the premium podcast episodes?

Yes! This will allow you to listen to them on any mp3 player.

Do the following steps on your Windows PC with iTunes downloaded (or modify them to do them on a Mac)

  1. Open your receipts email from, "Silk Studio Podcasts"

  2. Scroll to the bottom and click "View Podcasts"

  3. Click the "Subscribe" button next to any of the premium podcasts

  4. Select "iTunes" under the options for Windows (click "Open iTunes" in the pop-up)

  5. The premium podcast will now be in your iTunes > Podcasts > Library

  6. Click on that podcast in your iTunes Library

  7. Click the download image (cloud with down arrow) on any of the episodes

  8. Follow this pathway on your PC: This PC\Music\iTunes\iTunes Media\Podcasts

  9. Open the specific podcast folder

  10. The mp3 files that you downloaded should be right there
