Here's how to access the Slate Plus ad-free podcasts and bonus audio content. You won't find the Slate Plus versions of shows by searching in the public directories of iTunes or other podcast players. They're special, private feeds that you'll need to add into your podcast player—don't worry, you can do so in just a couple of taps! (You can also listen inside Slate's iOS app—log in once with your Slate Plus account and all member podcasts are available. Learn more about that here.) 

1. To subscribe in your podcast player visit the member podcast feed page (make sure you’re signed in to your account).

You can subscribe to the master Slate Plus Daily feed, which contains all of Slate’s podcasts.

Or you can subscribe to the individual show feeds instead, which contain just the Plus podcasts you are interested in. 

2. Click Set Up next to the show name

3. If you are on a mobile device, tap the name of your favorite podcast app to subscribe.

If you're on a desktop or laptop computer, enter your phone number and we'll text a private link that you can use to add the selected show or feed to your podcast app.

4. Repeat for each of the shows you'd like to add.
5. Listen! Your Plus episodes will appear under the show's new icon in your podcast app library.
