See below for step-by-step instructions followed by a video tutorial. Please read carefully as each Platform's setup is slightly different from the others (some require just an ID while others require an entire URL).

1) Start by clicking the icon in the top right corner of the podcast page.

2) Click on the Subscription Options tab.

Please read carefully as each Platform's setup is slightly different from the others (some require just an ID while others require an entire URL).

Apple Podcasts

In a search engine, search for "[YOUR SHOW NAME] Apple Podcasts" and find the public URL for your show.  Here's an example of a public Apple Podcasts URL:

https://podcasts.apple.com/podcast/id1437450588

From your URL, copy and paste the portion that comes after "podcast/id" and copy it into the Apple Podcasts field in the Subscription Options tab. In this example, copy the following into Megaphone:

1437450588

Stitcher

In a search engine, search for "[YOUR SHOW NAME] Stitcher" and it should bring up the public URL for your show.  Here's an example of a public Stitcher URL:

https://www.stitcher.com/podcast/stoic

You can paste the entire URL from Stitcher into the box in Megaphone. In this example, copy and paste the following into Megaphone:

https://www.stitcher.com/podcast/stoic

The URL will automatically truncate to just the necessary show ID - This is the expected behavior.

Spotify

Open Spotify on the Spotify desktop app and find your podcast to determine the Spotify URL for your show (the desktop app is located at open.spotify.com - you must be logged in to access). Here's an example of a Spotify podcast URL:

https://open.spotify.com/show/74tdbWwOGtwxY0eKfcJTbK 

From your URL, copy and paste the ID portion that comes after "show/" and copy it into the Spotify field in the Subscription Options tab. In this example, copy the following into Megaphone:

74tdbWwOGtwxY0eKfcJTbK

Google Podcasts (Not the same thing as Google Play).

Visit this page and add your RSS feed into the "Generate a direct link to your podcast" box and push "Generate." If your podcast is in the Google library, you will receive a green "Podcast retrieved" message and a shareable URL:

Copy the portion that comes after feed= and enter it into the Megaphone subscription options. In the example above, enter:

aHR0cHM6Ly9mZWVkcy5tZWdhcGhvbmUuZm0vAmluZGluZ2xvdmU%3D

iHeartRadio 

In a search engine, search for "[YOUR SHOW NAME] iHeart" and it should bring up the public URL for your show. Here's an example of an iHeart public URL:

https://www.iheart.com/podcast/269-stoic-30055034/

From your URL, copy and paste the portion that comes after "podcast/" and copy it into the iHeart field in the Subscription Options tab. In this example, copy the following into Megaphone:

269-stoic-30055034/

Google Play

You need to be logged into Google Play Music to search for your podcast in your browser. Navigate to your show page and take the alphanumeric string from the end of the URL.

Here's an example of a Google Play Music URL:

https://play.google.com/music/listen?u=0#/ps/I3uzc5vqjwgagd5xb4plgm4hede

For this example, paste what comes after the /ps/ into Megaphone, such as the following:

I3uzc5vqjwgagd5xb4plgm4hede

Note: Google Play Music does require you to be signed into your Google account to be able to access the Podcast pages.

Test to Make Sure Your Subscription Options Work

You can always test to make sure you have the correct show ID by opening up the Embeddable Player modal in Megaphone, clicking Subscribe, and clicking on the Platform images to make sure listeners will be taken to your show.
