I'm behind in my podcast listening so I had only been listening to Just Vocabulary's first 100 episodes. What a shock it was when I randomly selected episode 453 and heard the "new" format of the show. A loud annoying commercial in the beginning, another ad in the middle, and another at the end! Additionally, Jal's voice and the vocabulary words are computerized; so gone is that nice personal touch. This so called "Free" podcast is no longer free is it? … because with all these commercials we are paying, and dearly. It seems like there's more commercials than vocab here. Another thing, is somehow iTunes has reached into my podcast library and deleted about 300 episodes. Does anyone know how this happens; I have it set to save all podcasts, no auto deletes. Jal, no offense but it seems like you took a great podcast (spirit of commercial free home grown) and over capitalized on it … taking it from pleasing to bummer on the scale of listener enjoyment. Thanks for the old shows, no thanks for the outrageously commercialized format.
