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.

Horrible Artwork for Tech & Mediocre for Money Briefing

Please change this new artwork. Do you really think that messaging bubbles depicts anything about tech? Please show some futuristic robots, rockets, electrons or something else that is futuristic. Please just change the artwork, my downloads section looks horrible now. Only What’s News artwork is eye-catching/popping. Even Money Briefing’s artwork is not good enough. Maybe change of color to green or a stack of US dollars will help.
