Unfortunately many people on this board doesn't understand how the business works. I have no qualms about a bunch of people from BFF going onto Earwolf shows to promote their new shows. I understand that they are doing this. They want to drum up support and viewership in an ever dwindling audience. I'll probably check it out just based on these appearances and if I don't like it, so what. If I do, then their advertising was successful. And by supporting their show, it will allow them to produce more content that I enjoy. It's just part of the way things operate.
Like when Vanilla Ice was on, he was promoting his show in exchange for being on the podcast. Do I mind this? Not at all. It's just the way things are. The same with advertisers. I have no problems about Legal Zoom or Amazon or Audible supporting these shows because I'm not paying for them and I am willing to send a few dollars their way to justify them supporting the show. I don't mind sitting through the ads since, at the end of the day, these things cost money to make (studio time, engineers, etc...) and they are providing it for free.
Also, Paul Scheer, at the beginning of this episode, clearly states that they have friends on from BFF. If you couldn't figure out there might be some plugging then the blame only lines on you.
