you guys realize this is just audio from the tv show. that's why ads are so frequent, forensic files on tv has a lot of commercial breaks too.

Weird advertisement choices
 Sep 23, 2019
I used to listen to the show on Netflix without really looking, so I'm happy with the podcast format. The ads are very frequent, always the same and I feel like their content doesn't really target the right demographics American football and football (soccer) really? Zero interest!


 Jun 12, 2019
I love the podcast very well done, and I understand the need for ads. My issue is with the frequency and variety of the ads. the ratio of ads to content is getting out of hand. it's 5 mins of context then 2 mins of ads.

The podcast itself is great my issue with it is the amount of and frequency of the ads, they are every few mins, and so you are getting around 6 ads within a 20 odd minutes episode which is too much for my liking
