    Private message me.  I'll need your club bald move account name, which I'm assuming it's different from the forums.  Then we can link you up!

    Got it figured out. Guess I used the same email but a different password, didn't remember having registered two accounts. Thanks Aron

  • @DennisTarbox The accounts are not the same but when we launched club bald move we created accounts on the website for everyone who already had a forum account.  That's why your email address already has an account associated with it.

    I'm sending an email to the address I have for you which explains the procedure for linking both accounts.  Give it a shot and let me know if you have any problems.
  • Oops.  Looks like I was a little late to the game on that.  Disregard, @DennisTarbox
  • Hey, Jim and A-Ron,

    I have now subscribed to Club Bald Move.  Does that mean that my subscription on Patreon will automatically be cancelled or do I need to cancel it myself?

    Thanks!
  • Hi guys, is the ad-free podcast feed applicable to iTunes? I can't work out how...
  • @tpurr02 ;
    Patreon is a separate system so you would need to cancel via their website if you choose to

    Hey as your a supporter if you navigate to the VIP forum section there is a thread called 'Club Bald Move ad-free podcasts' where i mentioned how to add it to your podcast app

    Hope this helps a bit! =) 
  • Hi

    Is there any way I can join Club Bald Move without going through PayPal as I have had a bad experience with them in the past?

    I am currently a Subbable subscriber.

    Cheers.

    Yeah, we are working on other payment gateways right now.

    You will have to manually cancel your Patreon subscription.
  • @Jim Thanks for the info. I'll be sure to keep my eyes on the homepage more.

    After skimming through this thread, I have a couple of suggestions related to member/Club Bald Move features.

    A welcome email would go a long way to answering many of the common questions. The current email is a missed opportunity to prevent customer service inquiries.

    As anyone who ever paid for porn will know, there is usually a dedicated Members page (no pun intended), that provides access to the good stuff after login is confirmed. The Club Bald Move premium content is accessible on the Account page, but that's not quite intuitive. You may not even have to create a new page. Renaming Account to Members would probably help direct newcomers to the right place.

    I'm glad you guys are experimenting and growing your business. The podcasts are great and it seems the new subscription model makes sense for keeping costs down. I also really enjoy your transparency. As someone who occasionally considers podcasting as a side-gig, it's nice to get glimpses behind the curtain. The Outlines, LWJ&A, and discussions about your decision processes are all really useful. Combined with what I'm learning from Startup, I might even have a chance at success!

    Keep up the good work and take a vacation once in a while. @Jim @A_Ron_Hubbard

    I'm happy to support you guys but still haven't figured out a way to listen ad free. I listen through headphones at work with phone in my pocket. I either download directly from bald move site or use an android app called podcast republic. Any help from you or your listeners is appreciated. BITCH

    Does this post help:

  • hey @dan 

    Just in case that thread doesn't help you out:
    I've never used Podcast Republic and I don't have an Android device to install it but from what I can tell, you can add a podcast manually by going to your Subscriptions and entering the URL for the ad-free feed which is listed on your account page

    Hey guys, I'm having some technical difficulties with the club bald move check out page. I see my cart, with monthly subscription in it. The link "click here to login" is a dead link, and I can't seem to find anywhere else to login? Any tips? Maybe it's because I'm on my iPhone, I can give it another shot on my laptop later but since it's related to the link and happening in both safari and chrome I don't think that will help.
  • @TaraC73 Seems like you might have some problems with the javascript.  It's supposed to drop down a box when you click that link that has a field for username and password.

    You can try logging in through the link in the nav menu or you can just go directly to the login page.

    Once you're logged in you shouldn't have any checkout problems.

    Hope that helps.  If not, let me know.

    @Jim - I logged in on my laptop and got it all squared away.  Thanks :)

  • I like to archive old podcasts from all the past seasons that you have covered, but for many of the casts, there are missing episodes.  For instance, with House of Cards, the oldest podcast showing up in the feed is episode S02E08.  I know that you guys did casts for all of Season 2, but not all of them are listed in the feed.  Is this a bandwidth issue or are you eventually going to upload complete catalogs for the shows?
  • A_Ron_HubbardA_Ron_Hubbard Cincinnati, OH
    It's an iTunes issue.  You can theorhetically have like 150 episodes in your feed, but when you do, iTunes begins to update your RSS feed less frequently.  This does not affect subscribers, but for people who are just browsing the catalog, it generates a lot of complaints when the podcast has been out for 24 hours and people can't see it because it hasn't updated.

    Consequently, we design the feeds to basically keep the entire current season, or the entire last season, with all preview and wrap ups.  That keeps us humming.

    I think we might try placing the episodes to 100+ when we move to off season or shows move off air, because then it doesn't matter if the feeds update slow, because nothing new is coming out int he foreseeable future.  I think that would work well for most.

    The other thing is, they're all available in stitcher, because they don't use the itunes feeds.  They are also always available from our website, if you choose the podcast from the menu, you can use the "Next" and "previous" buttons at the bottom of the site to keep going back in time, and find, play or download the episodes you're interested in.
  • Is there a podcast app anyone recommends for the IPhone? I like to download all my casts at night to listen to at work the next day and I'm trying to listen to all the back TWD cast that are not on I tunes, but I can't figure out how to DL more than one at a time, any suggestions?

    I think the iphone has its own podcast app already called 'Podcasts' or you can try 'Pocketcasts' via the app store from there you can search for the name of the cast or just baldmove to track them down
  • That's what I use, but bald moves watching dead only goes back to the BEGINING of season 5, I want to go back to the beginning and download several per day at home on my wifi from the website and I haven't figured out how yet
  • I figured it out, dl stitcher, problem solved
  • HollyoakHollyoak Baltimore
    Can we just give a lump sum through Paypal? I'd rather just do it that way and only get one fee.
  • A_Ron_HubbardA_Ron_Hubbard Cincinnati, OH
    Yeah, you can pay for up to a year at a time via paypal, all through the Club shop.  It's the best value for sure.
  • HollyoakHollyoak Baltimore
    Thanks Mr. A Ron.

    Listening to your GoT season 5 preview now.

    Draw! Nock! Loose!

    LOL. That still cracks me up.
  • HollyoakHollyoak Baltimore
    Do we get some kind of badge by our name or any other meaningless crap like that when we join Le Club Bald Move?

    Maybe it would help new people see how many people have joined and encourage them to do so.


  • A_Ron_HubbardA_Ron_Hubbard Cincinnati, OH
    Yes!  I'm actually the hold up on that, I still haven't gotten around to kicking our gamification to the next level with badges and stuff.  Hope to get that done soon!

    Well, in your defense, you do have a bunch of TV shows to watch and then natter on about.
