Upfront I am not just singling out Bombcast or on how they do ad reads (I legit find them hilarious and don't get why people would listen to the premium ads free version). I have the same problem with all the podcast I listen too be it comedy or informative. The companies just come off as not reputable and cheap. I'm also not saying these advertisers are sketchy they just seem that way.
Here's a recent example: I thought Ex Machina was a brilliant film (stands at an impressive 91% on Rotten Tomatoes) but I had strong doubts about seeing it because they chose to advertise on Bombcast and other podcast. Even companies I do use and trust like Netflix and Amazon Prime come off as cheap fly by night operations when they advertise on podcast. So two questions - Why do all podcast ads seem sketchy? Or am I the only one that thinks podcast ads seem sketchy?
Side Note - Does anyone remember that Netflix ad where Jeff subtly shits all over that hack comedian Ralphie May and his most likely shitty Netflix exclusive comedy special?
