Stop the repetitive advertisements

I listen to what’s news, money, and tech news. The same commercial is played at the beginning and end of the podcast. Do you understand how irritating that is?

I don’t mind ads but you need to vary them up.

I will never support companies that you repetitively advertise.

I could only stand one episode…

…which was the car lease v. buy episode. The personal finance reporter’s description of car acquisition was biased towards leasing (a complex and typically more expensive way to acquire a car), lacked nuance and was unsophisticated. I heard too many things wrong with the reporter’s description to list here. My advice: don’t do anything based on what you hear in this podcast.

We should expect more savvy and detail from the reporter for a financial publication.
