Great podcast except...

I love this podcast and it’s positive message is sorely needed in this times. I was drawn to it through listening to Modern Love. However, the ad for another podcast “Food we need to talk” is incredibly repetitive and makes me cringe every time I hear it. It’s not the ad itself but it’s the fact they are essentially the only ads so you hear them multiple times, especially if you’re behind a few episodes. I just can’t, it’s ruining the experience of this podcast. Please, please fix this!
