Great! with a tiny comment :)
I really love the concept of the podcast, its very entertaining and gripping. However, I don’t really think it’s appropriate to make jokes about some of the survivors, I know its not done maliciously but I think it’s insensitive.
if loud intrusive ads are a dealbreaker, avoid this
the content is all right, but if you’re trying to relax and listen to a podcast, pick something else.
uneven audio levels with third party produced ads means you get unpleasant loud interruptions. there isn’t even a bumper to let the listener know an ad break is coming.
podcasters - when you read an ad I listen to them. when you have home accounting software ads that literally start with a person screaming in frustration over their bookkeeping problems, you lose subscribers
whatever ad network you’ve hooked up with, it’s not worth it
My favourite podcast!! Cant get enough of it <3
