Get Friends of the Podcast episodes on your podcast app
How do you get the Friends of the Podcast episodes on your favourite podcast app?
Well…you just get the Friends of the Podcast episodes on your favourite app. It’s really that easy.
We’ve launched a new system for 2020…
Once you’ve re-subscribed for 2020 using our brand new system, go to the subscription page to add the new feed to your podcast app.
You can listen to your private podcasts in the following podcast players: Apple Podcasts, Overcast, Pocketcasts, Podcast Addict, Castbox, BeyondPod, Podbean, Downcast, PlayerFM, Breaker, or RadioPublic. We do not currently support Stitcher, Spotify, Google Podcasts, or NPR One.
For Friends of the Podcast 2015 – 2019
You can still access content released from previous years by following the steps below.
As soon as you’ve signed up as a Friend of the Podcast…
Login to the website using the username and password sent to you via email (be sure to check your junk/spam folder).
Navigate to the Friends of the Podcast page.
Select any episode from the year of your subscribtion and click through to view the page. You’ll find a button that says ‘add the feed to your podcast app’ on each episode page.
Once you’ve landed on the Mobile Access page, simply copy the appropriate link, open your podcasting app of choice and look for the option ‘manually add a podcast feed’. On many podcast apps, this is signified with a plus “+” button.
IF YOU ARE ALREADY CONFUSED, DON’T WORRY. SCROLL DOWN THIS PAGE TO FIND STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS WITH SCREENSHOTS FROM ALL MAJOR PODCAST APPS.
Once you’ve pressed that little “+”, you’ll be prompted to “Add Podcast by URL”.
Follow that instruction, paste your chosen feed link in, and enjoy the Friends of the Podcast episodes.
You can repeat these instructions for each of the feeds (2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018).
If that still sounds a bit scary…don’t worry! We’ve taken some step-by-step screen-shots that cover all the best podcast apps on iOS and Android.
If you’re having any trouble, please don’t hesitate to drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
A final note: the Friends of the Podcast links are only for Friends of the Podcast, i.e. you! If you share you login details with multiple people there’s a chance your feed will stop working and your account will be frozen. You can still put it on in the car with some non-FOTP mates though.
