The concept is great, I haven't listened to the old show, but I will try it out. I think there might actually be more ads than podcast in this show, and some of the ad breaks come in the middle of the interviewees sentence. Hard to listen.

Not as interesting as the the old podcast

Great podcast, but the ads are excessive and repetitive. Some of the ads actually have ads within them as well. It's ridiculous, I have to use the fast forward button liberally.
