When the show started, back in 2007 I think, there was no advertising, and I had finally found an alternative to TV and radio where one can learn the Science without being inundated with advertisements.
This show has, over the years, evolved and taken on the same concept used by all other mediums to integrate advertising in the show. It is so annoying that just when you've gotten into the subject matter and focused on the topic on hand, they start talking about some product that breaks the momentum of the show, and for me, just ruins the whole experience. This is not what made this show what it has become over the years.
I am begging the hosts of this show...PLEASE, with cherry on top, get back to your roots and stop the advertisements. I don't know about other subscribers but I literally fast forward every advertisement, and it leaves such an annoying taste in the mouth that it ruins the entire show for me.
I have tremendous respect for the show and the hosts, and please don't take my review personally. This is an honest constructive feedback that your show needs. Don't lose your fanbase for $$$.
