Too many interrupting ads

I’m extremely fascinated by the subject. And I like the host, who does a fine job presenting the material in a clear and relatable manner. However, the ads are distracting. Having ads is understandable, but dropping them into the podcast, practically mid thought is too much. On top of that having one at the beginning and end is enough to put me off.

Very well done

Age of Napoleon is one of the podcasts I look forward to seeing download every two weeks. The research is top notch and the narrator does an excellent job taking you through the story.
