Once you’ve connected your account to Patreon, you will be able to assign new and existing episodes to Patreon tiers.
NOTE: If you leave an episode without a tier, then it's a public episode. Having some public episodes is a great way to give interested followers a taste of your work, as well as a clear way to encourage them to become patrons of your exclusive episodes.
Adding a tier to a new episode
Simply go to your show and hit the New Episode button on the top right. You’ll be prompted to add all the usual details for a podcast episode, like the title, description, and of course the audio file also. You can save it as a draft or publish it right away, and you can also schedule it for release later. In that form you will also be able to choose which Patreon Tier(s) your episode will be on.
You can also assign episodes to a Tier in bulk.
In the episode list you can select which episodes you would like to assign to the tier, and then choose the Access Tier dropdown menu on the right.
Remember, if you want a specific tier to have access to an episode, you must expressly add that tier. So, for example, if you want Silver tier members and Gold tier members to have access, you must assign BOTH Silver tier and Gold tier to that episode.
