Since moving from the AGT Home Shopping Network on to netcasts/podcasts I've noticed that a lot of shows feature the same advertisers, across twit.tv tech shows, Carolla/Penn, Kevin Pollak, and others. These tend to be the likes of Audible, Stamps.com, Amazon, GoToMyPC, and Ford. The LEAST mainstream advertiser has been something Carolla pronounces as "AutoShipper" (I think it's "shepherd"). Even that is just an online auto parts store. These podcast ads take up, at MOST, perhaps 5 minutes out of a 60 or 90 minute netcast. This contrasts with the wall-to-wall ads on the Stern show, consisting mostly of really low-rent scams such as AshleyMadison, Cheaterville, WhatsYourPriceForThisWhore, "Bee Zit", etc. The MOST reputable might be "Regus", which also has a terrible reputation. These Stern ads take up roughly 2 hours out of the 4 hour show. What's wrong with this picture? Why do free podcasts, with NO subscriber income stream, have far fewer and much better quality ads? Some of these podcasts are profit-making enterprises.
