Step 1: Create your exclusive podcast
To build a membership with exclusive podcasts, you will first need a podcast, and somewhere to host it. Here, we'll walk through setting up your members-only podcast with Glow’s hosting platform: the home for your audio files and place you’ll go to add new episodes.
Your members-only podcast is a new, stand-alone podcast (and RSS feed).
Set up your podcast with a podcast host platform
We recommend that you use Glow’s hosting platform for your members-only podcast. This way, you can ensure your exclusive podcast does not get listed publicly in podcast libraries, and you will have access to richer listener analytics.
For early access to Glow's hosting platform, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Using a different host? Here’s what you need to know.
You may want to use a different podcast host platform from Glow. Perhaps you are dynamically generating an ad-free RSS feed with your current host platform. Make sure that your podcast host has the following capabilities:
- To create an RSS feed that will not be listed by podcast libraries like Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, and Spotify
- To create a podcast with a title and podcast art that is different from your regular, public podcast.
