Well the title says it all really, where's the premium bombcast this week?

Word on the street is there aren't any ads this week, so no need.

Ads will be back in two weeks or so, as per Jeff on the podcast

To avoid confusion, they should just put a copy of the normal podcast this week in the premium area to allow premium members to still think they're getting an "ad-free" version.

I don't dislike the ads, as long a Jeff keeps presenting them with the same delivery. I actually feel like I'd be missing something without them.

@stete: No ads this week, so no need for a premium version of the podcast.

@tsutohiro: They are not bad, in fact they are a much better alternative than obtrusive flash ads and site takeovers but it's nice to have the option to pay a premium membership to have an ad free site.

@rorie: Matt Rorie you are awesome human being! Hope too see you on the podcast more often! WUB U!

@stete: Come on Rorie, we all know that's your second account.

I don't want the ad-free version ever since I like Jeff & Co so I'd like the premium download to be optional.

Of course you can just sign out or load a different browser, but still, that takes slight effort.

Personally, even though I'm a paying subscriber. I still don't mind the ads. Every other podcast I listen to has them, so if it generates more money for the site, I'm not fussed

There has to be a better way!

@rorie: As someone who replaced the Bombcast feed with the Premium Feed in iTunes when that podcast was added to the premium roster recently, I'm obviously in the camp that thinks there should be a copy of the podcast in that feed whether there are ads or not, so I don't have to download two copies of the podcast each week there are ads and check two feeds just in case. Thanks :)

@truthtellah: Jesus Christ that GIF irritates me. WHO DOES THAT? NOBODY! UUUGH!

#15 Posted by Rorie (2094 posts) -

@tdous: Yep, I have heard that feedback from some others as well. I'll look into seeing what we can do!

@rorie: In the ad-free weeks, add an ad in the premium podcast for something imaginary. That will truly confuse the masses.

@truthtellah: Maybe he should put down that remote for two seconds, the goddamn savage!

Yeah, just finished the podcast, and I was actually disappointed when there weren't ads because they were so funny the last two weeks.

What have I become?!?

Just deal with the ads?

#20 Posted by Breadfan (6586 posts) -

Hold up. There is a premium podcast?

#21 Posted by TooWalrus (12976 posts) -

@breadfan: just an ad-free feed for members
