The Podcast isn’t working correctly on my iPhone/Android/Computer/etc!

This is a common question. Generally, you can solve the problem with one of these solutions.

  • Completely power off your device and then turn it back on again.
  • Delete the Episode that’s having trouble and re-download it.
  • Delete “The British History Podcast” and resubscribe within your app.
  • Delete your Podcast app and redownload it.
  • Try directly connecting your device to the podcast by manually adding a podcast (google the name of your app and “manually adding a podcast” and you should find instructions on how to do this) and use this URL when you set it up:
  • Many times, if there’s a problem accessing the feed and you’ve gone through the troubleshooting steps, then it’s probably an issue with your device. Here are some links… Apple Support, iPhone Support, Android Support.
  • If none of those solutions, email me at [email protected]

I can’t access the main podcast!

I am subscribed but I can’t find all the episodes on my app!

  • This is almost always an issue with your program or device, and you probably need to manually download the episodes.
  • If you don’t know how to do that, try Googling the name of your program and a string like “how do I download all the episodes of a podcast.”
  • Double check that you’re properly subscribed.
  • Power cycle your device, wait a little bit, and try again. It’s possible that your device went haywire, or the site is getting hammered.
  • If the problem persists, try contacting tech support for your app or device. Almost always, this is an error in how your app or device is set up.

I can’t access the members episodes, transcripts, or timeline!

  • Only members can access that material. If you aren’t yet a member, you can sign up by clicking here.

  • If you became a member before May 2016, you will need to set up a new feed on your device because the old feed has retired.
  • Instructions on how to set up the members episodes on your devices can be found in your Account Page.

I don’t know what my username is!

I don’t know what my password is!

  • You can reset your password by clicking here.
  • Make sure to check your spam/junk folder, and give it 5-10 minutes for the reset email to arrive. If it hasn’t arrived by then, email me at [email protected]

I wrote to you but haven’t heard back!

  • Wait one full business day before you panic. I’m really busy and I’m told that I’m supposed to schedule time for sleep on occasion.
  • Also, if your email isn’t a hair-on-fire issue, you might not get a response right away. I do my best but I have to triage certain issues, so sometimes there are delays in my response time.
  • If you have a hair-on-fire issue, and it’s been a business day without a response, email me again. It’s possible that something went wrong and I just didn’t see it.
