“Yes, THAT!” Incredible Analysis

Great content -needs to have much less ads!

They offer great perspectives and insight into what’s really going on but the constant interruptions of ads takes away from the quality of the production that they put on each week.
I listen to many other podcasts and this one by far has much more ads. Is there a reason for so many ads?
