I enjoy podcasts. My podcast app is Castbox (because that is the one my daughter set me up on). I enjoy the fact I can download a whole list, listen to a continuous play, and pause or stop at anytime and when it restarts it remembers where I left off. That is particularly useful when I go from car to house. The problem is that not all podcasts I like are on Castbox. For example, I have to download your show from your app or website. When I play it from my download file, I cannot stop it or open another app without it starting back up from the beginning. Finally, my question. How do I get download file podcasts into my player, or any other player, and duplicate those features. You can probably tell I am not a digital native. (I’m 60)

Some podcast apps allow you to add a feed manually, which is what you need to do for our podcast and any others that require a paid subscription. Castbox allows you to add a feed manually, but you have to enter the username and password as part of the feed URL:
Unfortunately our feed will not work with the username in the URL, but there are other apps that allow you to enter it separately.
If you are on an Apple device, get Overcast. It is free and supports our feed.
If you are on an Android device, there are many options available like Podcast Republic and Podcast Addict.
When setting up any of these apps, find the option to add the feed manually and enter the feed URL below:
You will need to specify the email address associated with your membership and password.
NOTE: Our podcast feed still uses our old system. If you joined after the launch of the new community, or are a prior member having an issue accessing the podcast using that feed, please email email@example.com and I will send over some credentials that can be used in the meantime.

Update! We just launched a new podcast feed you can now use in the Apple Podcast app, as well as any Android or iOS app that supports authenticated feeds.

Why did the paid Komando podcast quit downloading to the Overcast app?

We just launched a new podcast feed, so you will need to update the settings in Downcast. All of the details you need can be found in the forum post below:
