Wanted to give some constructive feedback, hope it’s useful. I’ve been listening to ‘This Week in Linux’ for about a year, but I just unsubscribed. I’m a keen Linux advocate behind the scenes.
The last episode this week had too much housekeeping at the beginning. (There’s always a lot of housekeeping. It’s becoming overbearing.)
And I felt there were way too many ads for such a short podcast.
In fact - and this is going to sound harsh so I apologise - but this was the first time I ever witnessed the podcast equivalent of one of those old windows freeware download sites which have way too many ad banners, pop-ups, forced refreshes etc (things that desperately make money to keep it alive).
Since this podcast was not the only place I gather Linux news - one other similarish podcast and some youtube channels - the ratio of content quality/quantity to ads/housekeeping (ergo kinda more ads) wasn’t high enough to be a worthwhile experience.
I love your humour though. You have made me belly laugh a few times. I definitely share the same embarrassing sense of humour as you.
So this is a shame, but yeah that’s why I simply had to unsubscribe. I’m only one of many listeners you have / have had.
Hope that helps!
