Subscribe to the Podcast - It's FREE
The Skeptoid podcast is available for your smartphone, your computer, or anything else that plays podcasts. The free version of Skeptoid is supported with sponsor messages.
Help Using the Premium version
To get the premium show, the first thing you need to do is unsubscribe from the free show. Just delete it out of your podcast app. Gone. Done.
Next, subscribe to the premium show. Find your app's function to add a new podcast by its URL (check your app publisher's website if you need help finding this) and enter this feed:
You should be prompted for your username and password (which is the email address and password you use for your Skeptoid member account). Like most secured podcasts, Skeptoid Premium uses HTTP authentication which protects a show's feed with a username and password. If you need to ask your podcast app publisher for help, tell them that's what you're trying to do.
That's it, you're a premium subscriber!

Some apps don't support authentication. If your app doesn't, the only good advice is to USE AN APP THAT DOES. But if you insist on using an app that doesn't, here is an unsupported hack you can try that may work with some apps. Try entering the feed URL like this (using your Skeptoid email address and password, and replacing the @ in your email address with %40):
Apps that do not support authenticated shows include Spotify, Stitcher, TuneIn, Amazon Music. You can use these to listen to the free, ad-supported version of Skeptoid, but they are unable to access premium shows.
