Keith Lennon ,

Great

Great podcast, from guys who know their stuff

skipdeedy ,

Was great but ruined by frequent long ads

I’m a long time listener but I’m unsubscribing today. I just can’t handle the ads anymore. I know I can simply fast forward but Leo often integrates the ads into the actual conversation so it’s hard to know when they’ve stopped talking about the ad! The ads are just too frequent and too long. Shame.

AlanJHughes ,

Great but the ads are terrible

I love the twit network. Podcasts are always entertaining and informative. The guests for each show are great.

The only reason I can’t give 5 stars is the ads. Leo really needs to calm down with these. Some ads go on for 5 minutes and when you listen to enough of these shows it becomes extremely irritating.

I listen to a lot of podcasts and these are the worst I’ve ever heard for ads. On most podcasts it’s a minute, two minutes max. On twit it’s this excruciating monologue that makes me think of unsubscribing instead of wanting to buy anything.

Great shows, please reduce the length of the ads!
