Ad format in podcast

  • I presume this is occuring in Infected? I’m waiting to listen until they’re all out. Anyone know if the commercials are left in when he gives the stuff to Evo to post on Podiobooks? I noticed that the revised Chapters 41-45 was significantly shorter than the old 41-44 plus the 45 released in the Sigler feed. Lack of ads would definitely explain it…

    Even in serial format, these are stories/books/novels. Books don’t have ads between chapters and that’s pure gold. As Stephen King says, “books are the last ad-free form of entertainment.” Please consider putting them up front or at the end.

    Hey FDO,

    You, of course, have the right to run ads wherever you want, and

    certainly deserve compensation for  all the great work you’re sending out

    for free (greatly appreciated!). But sprinkling ads throughout the

    podcast really breaks up the flow. If I had a vote, I’d say put all the

    ads at the beginning, or at the end, or half and half.  An ad for each

    chapter starts to feel like late-night cable TV (especially on the shorter

    chapters), where you get 8 min of program followed by 12 min of

    commercial (and those late-night cable commercials are so fraudulent,

    I don’t think you want your sponsors lumped in the same group). 

    Just my $0.02
