Some podcasters offer their members access to exclusive episodes. If you support a podcast as a paying member, you will get access to these episodes.
Signing up to receive the exclusive episodes is very easy, but how you do it will depend on which service the podcast is using to host the episodes.
Here's how to subscribe via each of the services:
Subscribe to receive exclusive episodes via Steady's audio RSS feed
More specifically, you'll get a personalized audio RSS feed URL that you will then need to copy into your podcast or RSS app.
Here’s how it works:
Go to the menu and click on Memberships (all the plans you have purchased are listed here)
Click on the podcast button in the corresponding plan
Confirm in the next step with Continue
Then select a Reader app that you want to associate with your personalized Steady audio RSS feed
You only need to do this once. Then you will automatically receive new exclusive episodes from the podcast you support.
Subscribe to receive exclusive episodes via Spotify
Great news for podcast listeners on Spotify: if the podcast you support has chosen to stream their members-only podcast on Spotify, you can stay in the Spotify app and pick up your exclusive episodes right there.
To access your exclusive episodes on Spotify for the first time, you will be directed to a browser page to enter your Steady login or create an account. Once you have logged in, the exclusive podcast feed will be accessible, alongside any other podcasts you follow there.
Note: If your chosen podcast has both a free and members-only podcast, these will appear as two separate feeds on Spotify.
