I listened to the May 17 episode of this podcast. The podcast began with several minutes of local news from Charlotte, North Carolina, a weather forecast and traffic report (!), and President Bush's weekly radio address (!!) before finally, eight minutes in, the Home Improvement Show began. They actually cut out the advertisements, but left in all the other stuff. Why? Why would podcast listeners want to hear local news from Charlotte? And why would anyone want to listen to a traffic report that's not live?
