Good podcast

This is a good podcast but too Mac-centric… iPad, for example, is always the underdog here and looked down as a productivity tool…

Subscriber Edition playing ads?

I love the podcast and want to support it, hence why I have a paid subscription…but why do all the episodes still play with ads? Please help!!

Shuawesome ,
