What Is the Price Per Episode?

Now Playing Podcast episodes are available at a price based upon their original donation level. Previous donation drives have had minimum levels of $10, $15, $25, and $35. Then Easter Eggs were available for specific variable donation amounts as well. The set minimum donation for those episodes was put into a formula that allows the original donors to have gotten the series at a savings over the individual episode prices.


For example: The Thing series was a Gold donation of $25 -- $15 above the Silver donation, with supporters paying $5 per episode. To make sure they got the best price we just added $0.99 so now they are $5.99. However Child's Play was six episodes for $15 on last release, so we are able to offer those at $2.99.


Can I Order An Entire Retrospective in a Bundle On Podbean?
Currently, Podbean does not allow us to have multiple subscriptions with different episodes in each. We would really like to offer an Aliens or a Child's Play-specific subscription that gets you all those episodes, but right now Podbean’s subscription gives you every episode.


So, for the time being, series’ will need to be purchased on an episode-by-episode basis. 
We are nagging PodBean to give us this option, and they have indicated they will look into it. You can Tweet to @podbeancom and tell them it's something you would like as well.


I’m Having Trouble With My Podbean Pledge

Podbean is now handling all payments, and they can provide you support on any issues you're having with payment or accessing your shows. You can reach PodBean through their Support Portal.


How Can I Listen to Podbean Shows?
Exclusive PodBean shows are available once you log into the PodBean App (available for iTunes and Android), or through the PodBean website. You can download the show as MP3s and then listen on your computer or sync manually to your mobile device.


Why Can't I Purchase Your Show On the PodBean App? 
That is just not a feature PodBean offers (currently) through iOS. This is due to Apple not allowing sale of digital files through their devices (they want all digital purchases to be from Apple; it's the same reason you can't buy a MP3 from Amazon using your iPhone). At the moment, you must go to the Podbean website to sign up and pledge for Now Playing Podcast episodes.


How Do I Find Your Bonus Episodes That Are Now Available?
PodBean sorts our episodes by date and, at present, doesn't offer a view of just the donation episodes. You can use this page to find links above that take you directly to all the bonus episodes.


What Does the Annual Subscription Provide?
Those who subscribe for 12 months receive access to all the shows listed above, plus every bonus show we do for 12 months after you donate. This includes all new donation shows, as well as all podcasts exclusive as Crowdsourcing Rewards for our Patrons.


If I Support the Patron Crowdfunding Will I Get Access to Old Donation Drives?
No. The old bonus shows are only available individually, or through the annual subscription. But backers of $10 or more you will get a new exclusive show every 2 to 3 months


Will the Patron-Exclusive Shows Be Made Available for Purchase?
We have no plans to offer the patron-exclusive shows, as they are exclusive “Thank You” episodes for our monthly Patrons.


Why Should I Pay for An Annual Subscription?
With so many media companies offering annual subscriptions, we are working to exceed the quality (and quantity) of output that Now Playing Podcast listeners have come to expect. Our annual subscription offers access to hundreds of podcasts at an average of $3 per episode, and the number of episodes available to our supporters continues to climb. We’ve been podcasting since 2007, and we’re nowhere close to slowing down!
