The ads

The content is great, but the ads are obnoxious! Seriously the most ads of any podcast. Ridiculous! I can’t believe your advertisers don’t realize that everyone is fast forwarding through all of the ads. Don’t you make enough money on the ads in your paper? I have been a subscriber for over 25 years.
How about no ads and you hope that listeners support your paper?
Cracks me up every week when Rob wonders who might be on later in the show.
