Subscription?? $8 a month, yuck

I didn’t watch close enough and added this podcast to Apple Podcasts and got suckered into paying $7.99. I already get this same feed on Overcast for free.

I was trying to move all my podcasts from OverCast to Apple Podcasts and didn’t know AppStories was Pay to Play here. Oh well, live and learn. Fortunately I was able to cancel the subscription, but that doesn’t stop the first month payment to go through. Which it did very quickly.

First Class Passengers This Way

Really ad heavy, which I guess is going to continue even as they spend great amounts of time to push people towards what has to be the most premium Mac club going.They really seem to know their core audience, like a rancher knows cattle. Tier 3 for the jokes.
