Subscribing to a private RSS feed

When you become a recurring donor to a podcast through our Tip Jar, you may get access to private podcast content. This content can be added to most podcast apps using a private RSS feed URL.

These private URLs are unique to you and your subscription, but function like regular RSS feeds. A feed URL might look something like this:
