Should the internet be free? How do you feel about the ads constantly in your face?

We discuss how deeply ads have started to affect our online experience, which is affecting our mental state.

They help enable our lack of focus and a further a culture of normalized attention deficit.

Woah. Deep.

Are you up for paying for no ads?

And then there’s the discussion about podcasters endorsing vs sponsorships disclosures and all kinds of other little bits and pieces that we as an industry are starting to really need to clarify.
