Friends Of The Pod How Tos

How To: Join the Server

To join the Friends of the Pod Discord server, you’ll need to connect with your Supercast account by using this link: https://crooked.supercast.com/oauth/discord

The link above is associated with your Friends of the Pod Supercast account, however if you are a new Discord user you will need to create a new Discord account and login separate from your Supercast login.

NOTE: If you have an existing Discord account, you can login with those existing credentials.

Once you have created an account and accepted the Discord link invitation, you will be prompted by a few pre-join questions. Answering these questions will help you curate your Friends of the Pod Discord experience!

You will also be asked to read and agree to our Friends of the Pod server rules. These are important, so make sure to actually read them!

After answering our pre-join questions and agreeing to our server rules, you’ll be met with our Server Guide. Follow the steps and review the resources outlined in this guide to familiarize yourself with our Friends of the Pod Discord server.
