Of course commercials are annoying. They are annoying on TV and hulu and everything else. But, it allows, for the most part, people we like to keep doing things we like. Though, I would like to think that I and others would pay a subscription fee for an all-access pass to earwolf or nerdist networks. So far, Jeff and Scott have decided they would rather have ads than charge. Maybe that will change although I would think that just as many people will complain about paying money to hear a previously free podcast. I am pretty sure NNF lost a decent amount of listeners when they switched.
