On the episode level, Access for Publishers allows you to upload public episodes, lock episodes to be private, add promotional content or dynamically insert bonus material.
If Access for Publishers has been activated on your show, when uploading a new episode there is an additional Access Settings tab within the publishing flow.

If you want the entire episode to be publicly available, complete the publishing flow as normal. Fill in the episode details, leave the Access settings blank, edit the ad markers (if you show is taking advertisements) and set the episode to publish.
