Now Playing Spring 2015 Donation Drive

Now Playing is a private podcast with no sponsors or advertisers. We rely on listener support to keep our show on the air. Financial pledges from listeners makes possible the podcast we put out every week from the Marvel Comics series to Star Wars to Stephen King.

Twice a year to raise money to operate the show we hold donation drives. During these periods we make special, limited podcasts which are given as a "thank you" to those who make a financial pledge to Now Playing. These podcasts are only available during the donation drives, and put in the Now Playing Vault when the drive ends!

For our Spring, 2015 donation drive we are offering three special bonus podcast retrospectives as a "thank you" to those who donate to us between April 1 and July 31, 2015! Plus, for those who make a Platinum Level donation we are also offering one podcast series taken out from the vault!

If you have any questions about the donation drive, please see the FAQ below:



I donated but have no show! How do I get my podcast?
This is our most common question. All donations are processed by hand, and an e-mail is manually sent to you. We review all donation e-mails at least once per day. Once we process the donation we will e-mail you the links to the show.

Please Check Your Spam Filter! The single most common cause of e-mails not being received is them being captured and sometimes auto-deleted by your Spam filters. Please whitelist and to ensure all our e-mails reach you. If you have checked your spam settings and still not received your download e-mail after two business days of your donation please e-mail us at and forward us your Paypal receipt showing the e-mail address that made the donation as well as the date and time the donation was made.

I set up the donation series in iTunes but I'm only seeing the latest show. Where are the others?
iTunes has made recent changes to their software so newly set-up podcasts appear as if they have only released one episode. In your original e-mail there are instructions for finding the older episodes. You do this in the "Podcasts" in iTunes. Click on the donation series, and then click the "Feed" button in the upper right corner to show all episodes available. You then click the down arrow to the right of each episode to download.

Do I have to have the download e-mails sent to the same e-mail address I use for Paypal?
No. You can e-mail us at and include a forward of your Paypal donation receipt e-mail for your donation and the e-mail address at which you would like to receive the download notices. It may take up to two business days to process the change, so we suggest you monitor your Paypal e-mail initially, but we will then change the mailing address by hand.

How will I receive the bonus podcasts?
After your donation is processed (which is a manual process and may take up to two days) you will receive an e-mail with download instructions specific to you. A variety of download methods are made available.

It's been two days and I still dont' have an e-mail! What do I do?
First and foremost please check your spam filter in your e-mail. 99% of unreceived e-mails were put in a spam folder by your e-mail client. If you've checked your e-mail and still cannot find it please e-mail us at

Do I have to use Paypal to donate?
Yes. Due to the digital delivery of the files we need to have an online payment method and Paypal is the most universal form of payment. As we are a small operation we would not have the ability to keep track of mailed payments or payments made through alternate methods. Multiple payment methods creates more overhead. However, you do not need to have a Paypal account - you can enter credit card information without having an account.

Do I need a computer to download the podcasts, or can I get them right from my phone/tablet?
This depends very much on the mobile device you use. Android and Windows devices allow downloading from links and storing on your local device. Apple's native iOS Podcast app also allows subscriptions to custom feeds. iOS (Apple) instructions are provided to donors. So I suggest researching the capabilities of your specific device if you do not have a computer. All devices can stream our donation podcasts, the only limitation may be downloading for off-line listening and automatic downloading of new shows.

I donated previously. Will I receive these bonus podcasts?
Our donation drives are limited time "thank you" gifts. While we are very, very appreciative of all donations to keep our show going, only donations made between April 1, 2015 and July 31, 2015 will receive these thank you podcasts.

I donated last Spring. Where is my Jupiter Ascending review?
The Jupiter Ascending movie review was sent out in early February. If you have not received it please e-mail us at

I donated for Silver. If I donate the difference can I upgrade to Gold or Platinum?
Yes, but we ask that you please donate in one swoop. Paypal takes a per-transaction cut of every donation, so if you donate twice Paypal takes twice as much, so if you add an extra dollar to help cover the fees it is appreciated. Additionally, if you donate to add to a previous donation please e-mail us to tell us to add the donations. We process all donations by hand and without this e-mail we may not realize we need to add the two donations together. Due to the Paypal fees no more than 2 donations will be added together.

I don't want a the shows offered in this donation drive. How can I get your previous donation drive shows like the Pegg/Frost films or Aliens?
None of the previous donation retrospective series are available. Our thank you podcasts are available for a limited time as a donation incentive and once the donation drive is over the podcasts are no longer available individually. More, we are a very small team and our focus is movie reviews, not web sales. We simply are not set up to deliver a'la carte shows. At this time we have no plans to again make available any previously offered retrospecive series.

If you have any other questions please e-mail us at
