im ok with this.

Posted by Brenderous

I'm really enjoying how the bombcast descriptions of late have been sounding like synopses for episodes of Mad Men.

Wait... Deja vu.

Posted by chilibean_3

You guys really don't need to do this. It is a nice gesture though.

Posted by DeadeyeMcCoy

Thanks for putting in the extra effort to maintain the commitment, @jeff. Even though I love your radio voice when you read off that ad.

Have you guys heard about squarespace? It's a fast and easy all-in-one platform to create your own professional website or online portfolio. For a free trial and 20% off, go to squarspace.com and use the offer code: bombcast9.

WHERE'S YOUR MEMBERSHIP NOW?!?!?!?!?!

Edited by csl316

If the guys read the ads themselves then I honestly want the ad-not-free one. I guess this is ok, though!

Hell, I was glad to hear they're monetizing this stupid thing (as long as the site gets some of that $$$).

Dota!

Please don't do this...

If it is a joke than it is cool

Posted by Fobwashed

I want the ads. At least for now =) Also, no such thing as a free lunch. If you really don't want ads, get a membership and support the site proper like.

Posted by MichiganJack

Hold on I left my shoe in the other RSS.

Posted by DarkPants

I only like my casts premium

Posted by Itwastuesday

thanks for throwing up an ad-free one

Posted by Hassun

It's kind of weird to hear them talk about the ads and not hear the ads.

I am confused!

Posted by shinboy630

Anyone have a guide or something on how to get the premium podcasts to show up on something like pocketcasts? Any help is appreciated.

Posted by soupbones

Is there a way to get this thru itunes?

Big ups for thinking of us premies GB!

Noooooo my shinny medal is useless against this kind of villainy!

Posted by BruceLeet

So how do I get this feed to show up in iTunes? Super annoying if I have to use the website instead of the podcast app to listen to this.

THERE'S NO ESCAPING OUR IN-LINE ADVERTISING

Posted by Libb

@shinboy630: Just copy the link on the RSS button up above into the Pocket Casts add feed screen and it should find the feed just fine.

Posted by LtSquigs

@bruceleet: You can subscribe to it through itunes, click on File > Subscribe to Podcast, and add this url into the field: http://www.giantbomb.com/podcast-xml/premium/

Should ask you for your username and password.

Now I have the ad free version. Where do I sign up for the ONLY ADS version?

Posted by ElJosh

@ltsquigs: im guessing that this is why Instacast on ios has been harrassing me all day for a username and password again for the premium feed?

Edited by MightyMayorMike

Glad there will be ad-free podcasts for posterity. Though I did enjoy Jeff's reading.

Posted by CustomOtto

will the premium podcasts have all dota 2 talk cut out?

Posted by UltimAXE

Something tells me that I will always never use this ad-free bombcast, but thanks anyway. This assuming that Jeff maintains his insanely high amounts of enthusiasm for reading said ads.

A few minutes messing around and realised I had to set feed authentication for this premium feed now. Looks like they finally did it.

Edited by FadedOasis

@nickdynmo: I'm getting the same error in InoReader and in Podax. I think this podcast feed is incompatible with the majority of RSS readers. It's like they implemented it with only iTunes in mind.

*sigh*

Edited by ElJosh

for the record, 3 people for 3 hours once a week is ~$250 pw on a 150 hour work month if they are on a average wage, so monetizing it inst unreasonable at all, but having a ad free copy for paying subscribers is a good thing. Same as for the website......

Edited by Rhombus_Of_Terror

@nickdynmo: yeah, find the Feed Authentication area in feed settings (for the premium podcast) and put in your GB login then you're good to go.

Posted by LtSquigs

@eljosh: Yeah we switched it over yesterday to password protect them because of this.

Posted by ElJosh

@ltsquigs: should it be prompting me for a password on each refresh though or should my app of choice cache them? probably not a question for you but maybe you got something.......

Posted by Nerolus

I listened to the ads on the other one, and then started this one. Fuck the rules!

Posted by Stimpack

This is where the special people go, right?

Posted by cooljammer00

This is far better than that....INCREDIBLY illconceived "we're gonna split the bombcast in two!" idea back when the site first went premium and everyone revolted. I'm glad they apologized for the stupid idea.

Posted by MrViral

Not offended at all by the ads. This just means more money for the guys, and better content for us. The fact that they're well-read is just a bonus!

Edited by Malarkain

I was already subscribed to this feed on Pocket Casts (for Android) and this bombcast just isn't showing up after refreshes.

Edit: After doing some digging it seems Pocket Casts doesn't support authenticated feeds, yet. Oh well, I can deal with Shady Jeffrey and his Shifty Deals

Posted by PurpleMoustache

So I figured out how to get the premium feed in Apples Podcast app, but its "Not a Podcast". Which makes me sad. But hey, I listen to Judge John Hodgman, the show with the most advertising ever, so I can probably deal with one 15 second ad.

Posted by I_Stay_Puft

I guess this is what we get for using ad-block...

Posted by Deadlydog

@brad Your contacts are definitely not supposed to be gummy like that...you should really visit and eye doctor.

Edited by NickDynmo

@nickdynmo: yeah, find the Feed Authentication area in feed settings (for the premium podcast) and put in your GB login then you're good to go.

Thank you very much!

Posted by MrGtD

yeah but live reads are rad so i'm still gonna listen to the regular one

Posted by Vitamin_Dei

So how exactly does this work with my phone? Or doesn't it? Not that I mind. Listening to an ad or two doesn't really bother me much, but if I'm getting a membership perk I'd like to try to use it.

Posted by Rorie

If you're having issues with the authentication, be sure to try using your username/password when logging in rather than your email/password. And let me know over in this thread if you're having issues.

Will listen to the version on iTunes with ads out of laziness and curiosity.
