Wonderful premise for a podcast

Really gives you insight to the inside baseball of show creation plus seeing what might have been.

If You Love TV/Sitcoms, Check Out This Podcast

I am a layperson when it comes to TV and the entertainment biz, but this show consistently showcases terrific pilots - engaging stories by writers whose work I know and writers I'm just being introduced to, with a pool of actors that deliver excellent performances every time, even now over video chatting in these times. The interviews with the writers are fascinating even for me, as well. I didn't mind having both the table read and the interview in the same episode, but now that they're separated, it's even more easily digestible. Great show, one I look forward to consistently!

Good show but the ad lengths are outrageous

I’m listening to episode 71, and at the first act break, around 21 minutes, it went to ads. It returned to the show at 30 minutes. 9 MINUTES STRAIGHT OF ADS? And the first few minutes of the show were also ads. So almost 50% of the show so far is ads. I’m assuming there will be more as the show continues.
This is completely egregious, and makes me not want to listen to this show. If you’re a producer on this show, please listen to this feedback and dial back on it. I know it is free, and I know you need to pay your bills, but you are losing listeners by putting in these insane ad breaks. Have you ever heard of a tv show with these insane ad lengths?
