Updated for the new 2023 interface!
Hey friends, we’ve heard a lot of feedback from Patrons who are struggling to get all the Patreon episodes they want to hear. Patreon gives you access to a special URL called an RSS feed that you can paste into most podcast players, meaning you can listen to the Trash Candy Spectacular feed where you listen to every other podcast. We’ve put together this little tutorial to try to help get you all the trashcandy you can take! If you need further assistance, please email us at email@example.com and we’ll see what we can come up with.
Step 1: Find your personal RSS feed on Patreon
Note: If you still have your initial Thank You email from when you first signed up, your private RSS link is included there. You can open it on your phone, copy the link, and then proceed to Step 2 below.
First things first, log into your Patreon account. Your Patron homepage should show your personal Feed.
Click any creator name, either on the sidebar panel (left), or in the feed itself. For this example, I clicked Done & Dunne’s name in the feed.
Once on the creator’s page, click Membership.
Scroll down to the Copy Link button. This block may also be labeled “Listen on other podcast apps” with the Copy Link button beside it.
The process is essentially the same on your phone, although the sidebar panel shown on desktop is accessed through the top left menu on Safari, and presumably other mobile browsers. Once you have your RSS feed copied, proceed to Step 2!
Step 2: Add the RSS Feed to Your Phone’s Podcast Player
Whoa-oh, we’re halfway there…. Once you have the RSS feed link, it’s time to put it into your podcast player. We’ll give you two examples (Apple Podcast and Overcast), but you may need to ask Google about “how to add an RSS feed to [specific podcast player]” if your app is noticeably different.
Open Apple Podcasts and go to your Library. Click the “three dot” menu button to the top right.
Click “Add a Show by URL” on the menu that drops down.
Paste the RSS feed link you copied earlier, then click “Follow.”
Your Trash Candy Spectacular feed should populate in your Library right away. Congratulations!
Adding Your RSS Feed in Overcast:
Overcast has a menu at the very top of the screen with several options.
Press the + sign at the top right.
Click the “Add URL” option at the top right, then paste the RSS Feed link into the field and then click “ADD.”
