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.

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.
