FAQ: How do I add a Bulwark+ member-only feed to my podcast player?

In addition to newsletters, The Bulwark produces a number of podcasts including member-only shows and ad-free editions of our public shows. Each of these podcasts has a home on Bulwark+ site, here.

Bulwark+ members can listen to these shows through the site via your browser, via the Substack iPhone app or you can add your own private RSS feed to your third-party player app of choice (like Stitcher, Pocket Casts, Apple Podcast, Google Podcasts or Amazon Music.)

There are now two routes to adding your personal RSS feed to your player app:

  1. Add shows individually or as single super feed, here, or*

  2. Go to the show home on the Bulwark+ site and click on a recent episode. Just beneath the player there is a link to “Open in player.” Click this link and follow the instructions.** 

*Make sure you are logged-in to Bulwark+ with the email tied to your paid account before you add your private feed to your player, otherwise you might inadvertently add an open feed that doesn’t include ad-free and member-only shows.

** You’ll want to delete any existing free editions from your podcast player to avoid confusion.
