Cut-off?

Love the content but it seems like the beginning of each podcast is cut off! They all start mid-sentence.

Good content but the ads..

The content is good but there are SO many ads in such a short 25 minutes episode.. feels like at least 8-10 minutes are spent talking about ads. Not sure if I’ll keep up with listening or if the ads will get to me.
