FAQ

How does it work?

Once you've signed up, you'll get access to a new 'The Rest Is Politics Plus' feed. It lives in your normal podcast app, and episodes will appear as they did in the public feed - only without ads, which regular listeners won't have access to.

The podcast artwork has a gold '+' on it, so you can differentiate your members-only feed from the public one.

Is it easy to sign up?

Very. The easiest way to do it is on the device you usually use to listen to the podcast - for example, your phone. Pick your plan, enter your name, email address, payment details and you're good to go. You can use any major credit or debit card, Apple Pay on iOS or Google Pay on Android.

What do I get for my subscription?

As well as kindly supporting the podcast, you'll get a totally ad-free listening experience, early access where we can provide it for 'Question Time' episodes, and priority for live event tickets.

All this for £3.49 a month or £34.99 a year!

Can I use my current podcast app?

We support Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, Overcast, Pocket Casts, Podcast Addict, Castbox, BeyondPod, Downcast, PlayerFM, Breaker, and RadioPublic.

Sorry, but we do not support Stitcher, Podbean, or NPR One.

You’ll also be able to listen to your podcast purchase online.

Can I buy a subscription for a friend?

Of course! Click here or on the 'Gifts' button in the top right-hand corner of this site, choose a '6 month' or '12 month' subscription, and fill out the relevant information.

You can schedule a gift for a birthday with a personal message, which will land in the recipient's email inbox on your chosen date.

Who do I speak to if I have a problem or a question?

Your listening experience is powered by Supporting Cast.
