Office Question

Can you talk about how you came up/do Kevin’s voice and how he talks? Love the show

Ads

Started putting way to many ads. No need for an extra 10-20 minutes of ads repeating same ads throughout same episodes

Too many advertisement reads

Constantly breaking to read 3-5 minutes of ads is extremely annoying. It makes the podcasts annoying to listen to. We all skip them, just front load the podcast and do the interviews in one shot.
