We sometimes need to share an episode before it is publicly published for pre-release feedback, internal audiences, exclusive premium content for select fans, advertisement partners, etc.

At Firstory, you can utilize FLink for your draft and scheduled episodes. (The link to each platform on your regular podcast FLink will be automatically updated after scheduled release).

Watch this video tutorial to learn how:

  1. Select your draft episode's "FLink" from Firstory Studio and copy the link. (You may also choose "Embed Player" if you wish to embed the episode into a private blog for exclusive audiences.

  3. The private draft episode will be available to whoever you share the link to, and they'll be able to listen through any web browser.

    Additionally, the episode link will automatically capture the platform URL. When the platform has been updated after scheduled release, your regular FLink will also automatically be updated within half an hour.
