WHAT IS THE SECOND CAPTAINS WORLD SERVICE?
The Second Captains World Service is our independent, commercial-free, member-led online platform that allows you to listen to all your favourite Second Captains produced podcasts every day of the week. Our members also allow us to develop longer-term broadcasting projects like our upcoming investigative collaboration with the BBC.
It’s so easy to join via the Patreon platform so check out what we have to offer below. And don’t worry, you can get the World Service on your phone via your favourite podcast app too, find out how by clicking here.

WHY USE PATREON?
We have decided to use Patreon as it is an experienced platform that will ensure our members payment security and privacy. Their help desk is excellent and can provide constant support and the whole system is completely transparent. There are no varying or ‘premium’ prices and no lengthy commitments required. Everybody pays the same and our members control how successful the World Service is.
HOW DO I INPUT MY RSS FEED INTO MY PODCAST PROVIDER?
We have put a detailed article together which should make it really easy for you to get all our shows on your phone or tablet once you have signed up. Check it out here.
CAN I SHARE MY RSS FEED ONCE I AM A MEMBER?
No you can’t, the RSS is an individual link just for you. Patreon can trace multiple users so please do not share your link as they will shut off your Patreon access and the RSS link itself. Feel free to let someone else wear your badge.
WHY AM I BEING CHARGED VAT?
All companies in Europe have to charge value-added tax (VAT) on goods and services sold. The rate of VAT you have to pay depends on the country in which you are based: different countries have different rates of VAT. So members in Ireland will pay 23% VAT, members in the UK 20%, members in Switzerland 8%, and so on. The VAT charged on membership accrues to Patreon, who make the VAT returns to governments in the relevant countries.
WHY IS THE PRICE IN DOLLARS?
The price is expressed in dollars because Patreon is a US company and works in dollars. The company do not (at this moment in time) allow for currency changes. The dollar cost of membership is equal to five euros. The dollar amount can fluctuate in response to changes in the dollar-euro exchange rate, but the amount charged will always be equal to five euros.
WHEN DO I GET CHARGED?
When you become a member you get charged immediately. All subsequent payments will be charged at the start of every month.
IF I BECOME A MEMBER CAN YOU PROMISE NEVER TO BROADCAST EOIN’S POEMS AGAIN?
Yes. To expedite this process, you can contact McDevitt directly with your concerns about his shitty feature @EoinMcDevitt.
IF I BECOME A MEMBER AND DECIDE I REALLY DON’T LIKE YOU, CAN I END OUR LITTLE ARRANGEMENT?
Yes. You can break our hearts any time you want. Just send back the badge because you won’t deserve it anymore. All you have to do is go to your Patreon profile and delete your pledge. Easy yet so cruel.
WHY ARE THERE SO FEW QUESTIONS ON HERE, IS IT BECAUSE YOU'RE LAZY?
Yes. Please email your other questions to email@example.com and we can add both the intelligent and the funny on here.
