Expectant twin parent ,

Useful if can get through all the ads/announcements

I find these podcasts useful, but you have to be ready to listen to an ad or an announcement after every piece of useful information. The actual conversation does not start until minute 8 or so of an episode. Many podcasts have ads, but somehow they do not take half of an episode. There is definitely a room for improvement!
