When you sign up for premium content, you must create a Podbean account to be able to stream and download.

You DO NOT have to use the Podbean website for Party Favorz nor their app if you do not want to. You can still use https://partyfavorz.com as usual.

It’s not clear if Party Favorz works on Apple Podcasts but you most likely need to follow the steps for iTunes for Windows PCs on your MAC laptop or desktop. After setting up your account (below), open iTunes in Windows and click on “file” then click on “subscribe to podcast.” In the empty field, paste https://partyfavorz.com/feed/podcast into the box and hit enter. It will populate the episodes and the first time you try to download or play an episode, a box will pop-up asking you for your username and password. Check the box to remember your password and you’re all set.

Otherwise, the Podbean app for your smartphone is excellent and carries all of your favorite podcasts that you can easily subscribe to. You can download the Podbean app for Android here or the Podbean app for iPhones here. Once installed, search for “Party Favorz” (without the quotes) and then subscribe. You can stream or download episodes for playback later and receive notifications on your phone when new episodes are available. All 800+ episodes are available in the Podbean app but easier to navigate and find what you’re looking on the Party Favorz website for PC or smartphones.

Steps to setting up your account:

Sign up for a premium content account. Once you’ve done that, you’ll be redirected to a confirmation page:

You will also receive 2 email confirmations. The first is your receipt and the other should say “Podbean Paid Subscription Confirmation. I highly recommend saving this second email confirmation. It has links to the Party Favorz podbean website (which ain’t all that hot) and you’re better using https://partyfavorz.com the main website outside of the Podbean bubble. You can download the app for your mobile device (Apple or Android) from either website.

The email also contains a link to manage your subscription. It will prompt you to log in and when you click your profile in the upper right-hand corner there you update your payment information, change your password, or even (heaven forbid) cancel your subscription. Equally, all of this information is in our support section.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Use the email you used to sign up with as your username and create your own password. If you haven’t created a password yet — just click on “forgot password” at the log in screen and you’ll receive an email to reset your password.

Now that you have set up your Podbean account, you can go to https://partyfavorz.com* on any device, use iTunes^ or the Podbean app to stream and download from anywhere in the world. Speeds vary by location because I do not have control over Podbean’s servers nor their placement. 

*If you have AdBlock or a pop-up blocker in your browser, you will need to give partyfavorz.com permission to allow pop-ups – otherwise, you will not see the login information.

^ Instructions for setting up iTunes are above or there is a tutorial  in the support section of the website.

If you forget your password or have additional support questions, go to https://podbean.freshdesk.com/support/home to create a support ticket with Podbean.  Additionally, information about updating passwords, emails, or your payment method can now be found in the support section of Party Favorz. Any addition questions should be directed through our contact section of the website where we’re always happy to help. 

Podbean recently revamped their app so we created a little step by step tutorial for users to get up to speed on how to use it.

Step 1: Download and install the Podbean app from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store.

Step 2:
On mobile or tablet — open the Podbean app search for the Party Favorz page here and click on the 3-line vertical accordion on the mid right-hand side  shown here.

 

 

 

 

 

Podbean Filters
Step 3
:  Here, you’ll see the “Filters” pop-up which allows you to manage the episodes you’re viewing within the app Make sure “All Episodes” is checked to view  and scroll through every available episode. If you select “Downloads” that will only display the episodes you’ve already downloaded to your device and nothing else. Likewise, “New Episodes” will only show you the latest nine.

Of course, you can sort the episodes in any view from newest to oldest or vice versa.

 

 

 

Podbean Profile on Mobile App
Step 4:
At the bottom of the Podbean home screen you’ll see three widgets. The first “Discover” will display podcasts Podbean is either promoting or thinks may interest you based on your listening habits. The recommendation improve the longer you use their app.

The second widget is “Following.” This will display all the podcasts you follow for easy access.

The third widget is “Search” which allows you to search for your favorite podcasts to follow.

The fourth widget is “Profile.” Click on that one because there are some important settings in their you should be aware of.

Once you’ve clicked on “Profile” click on “Settings” where you will fin multiple options you can set for the app’s behavior.

 

Podbean settings
Step 5
: The first is “Seek by” which allows your to fast forward and backward through various intervals. By default it’s set to 30 seconds but you can change that.

I’ll cover “Storage” last.

Auto Download New Episodes” allows Podbean to automatically download the newest episode to your device so that it’s already waiting for you the next time you open the app. I prefer to leave it off but that depends on your preferences.

Delete Played Episodes” is exactly that. After you’ve listened to the episode Podbean will automatically delete it from your device. Once again, I recommend leaving this option off. It’s something iTunes had turned on by default and people would be upset that their favorite episodes would no longer be available to them. The object is to free up space on your device but I’m a control freak so I prefer to do the cleaning myself.

Cellular Controls” allows you to decide whether you want to stream or download only over wi-fi or use your mobile data. I have an unlimited plan and wi-fi isn’t always available so I leave both options on.

Notification Settings” allows you to control whether a new episode from a podcast you follow is available on your phone. This option is entirely up to you. Though, I’d leave the “Recommended” and “New Comments” turned off unless you’re interested in receiving these notifications.

The “Region” and “Language” options are pretty obvious.

Night Mode” is dependent in whether you prefer a dark background or bright white.

Storage” is an important option because it allows you to set what folder the episodes are downloaded to. I have it set to the music folder, which creates a Podbean folder where all downloaded episodes are held for easy review and clean-up. You may have a SIM card you prefer to download to so it’s basically your choice.

 

Step 6: Finally – Downloading. When you click the download button sometimes it appears nothing is happening when in fact it is. It can take a few seconds but eventually you will see a downloading dialogue at the bottom of the episode. Sometimes, it stops at 99% but you can be assured that it’s actually 100% as I’ve tested this out myself.

Some users have reported that downloading can be excessively long. I’ve tested it myself and a 3-hour episode can take 5 minutes or longer to download. There are many factors involved like whether you’re using wi-fi and whether it’s the latest version or if you’re using 3G, 4G or 5G for your mobile service. Additionally, how far away you are from the nearset server in your part of the world determines the speeds you receive as well. If it’s going slow for you — change the setting above for “Auto Download New Episodes” so that it’s already there when you want it.

Party Favorz has a blazing fast mobile website, which is much easier to navigate to find older episodes and categories with faster download speeds. Nevertheless, Podbean has one of the better apps we’ve used and it’s a good source for all your favorite podcasts in one spot. Whether you use it depends on your needs.

If you find yourself unable to log in to your account, follow these steps:

1. Go to https://www.podbean.com/login

2. Click on “Forgot Password.”

3. Enter your email address and click “Retrieve Email.”

4. Go to your email inbox and find an email from Podbean with the subject “Reset your password.”

5. Click the Reset password link in the email to reset your password.

6. Go back to your app or the website and log in with your new password. 

If you don’t see the email, check your junk/spam folders or any other filtered folders (e.g. If you use Gmail, it might be in the Social or Promotions tabs)

Otherwise, the Podbean app for your smartphone is excellent and carries all of your favorite podcasts that you can easily subscribe to.

There are only a handful of episodes that are no longer available on this site, which they are clearly marked.

Any post that has an audio player and download link and does not work as expected is likely corrupt. 

In the advent that this occurs, send me a message through the Contact section of this page or through Messenger on Facebook and I will fix it within 24 hours.

I get asked this question a lot and here’s the definitive answer:

Party Favorz DOES NOT provide links to individual songs.  While some things I receive are strictly promotional, most songs are readily available on legal sites like Beatport, Traxsource, Juno Download, Apple Music and Amazon MP3.

I receive a large number of promotional materials each month.  While I can’t guarantee placement on Party Favorz, I DO review everything forwarded to me and give it equal consideration. You can forward your tracks to Party Favorz through the contact section of this site.

If you wish to have your songs removed from an episode and/or Party Favorz, please submit your request through the contact section of this site and we will honor your request.

Please don’t be a dick and file a take down request with Google. Party Favorz honors any and all take down requests through our contact section. 

In the 13 years that Party Favorz has been in operation, we’ve only had one take down request for a song that wasn’t even on the site. We will vigorously defend false claims through the proper channels.

Party Favorz offers as much support as possible to subscribers to resolve issues. We usually respond within 24 hours — often less.

If the above instructions to resolve the problem aren’t working — we’ll be happy to help. The contact section of the website is the fastest way to resolve your issue. 

I am also testing out remote access support for North America only. If you request it, I will send the instructions and a number you can call or I will call you — whichever you prefer. Only English is supported.

If you have other questions not addressed here, feel free to reach out to us through the contact section of this site or through Facebook messenger.
