This is the best arts-leaning (somewhat arbitrary descriptor) podcast out there. The sensibilities behind the eclectic programming are impeccable. Highly recommended.

The organist is the well dressed bespectacled girl you meet at a party who lives in a quasi dream state and sells zines on campus but nonetheless has interesting insights and explores corners of arts and culture you would never have the time / wherewithal to pursue. 5/5

Intrusive advertising that cheats listeners into listening, spoiling the content.

Look, I understand that you need to play ads but suddenly and randomly cutting content to play an ad assumes that users need to be tricked into listening to ads. You spoil the content and you spoil the advertiser’s brand by associating it with being annoying.

I had subscribed to The Organist via 99% Invisible but once I got around to listening, the constant random interruptions made me stop, unsubscribe and take my time to write this negative review.

Don’t assume the worst of your listeners. It’s insulting. Take appropriate breaks in the content when it makes sense, such as between content segments or at least at the end of a thought. Don’t interrupt mid sentence to force feed ads.

Hopefully I’ll remember to check your podcast in the future and notice that you’ve taken this advice.
