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!

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

@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 :)

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

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?!?
