I have absolutely no problem paying a reasonable price for quality content. This allows the artists to continue to produce content with the best talent and equipment available, and for it to be distributed across a quality medium. I appreciate the team respecting the desires and needs of the listeners, but the artists also deserve a fair wage for the content they produce and if ad sales and a low monthly subscription rate allow for that, then it is totally cool. What is not cool is expecting people to produce content for you for free. The artists work their butts off, produce a great podcast, and should reap the benefits of that.
