Oh, I love the new ads.
I was just thinking the other day: "these podcasts are OK, but I really miss those grating and awful ads from normal radio" I know what you're thinking - there have always been ads on the podcasts! But those were all thematically appropriate, in the voice of the hosts and didn't yank the listener out of the show. These unfunny and completely generic Pepsi ads are a welcome change from all of that.
I was just thinking the other day: "Earwolf provides me and 100,000+ other people with 8-10 hours of free audio every week. In an economic climate where advertising revenue — especially online advertising revenue — has bottomed out, I'd be surprised if sponsorships even offset the expense of transferring hundreds of GB of data per week." I know what you're thinking - the success or failure of Earwolf's business model is not my problem! But if the business falters, so too goes the comedy.
Ergo, rather than complain, I have chosen to grit my teeth and endure the sisyphean task of listening to a 60-second Pepsi spot
