Yeah it's not there. At that point on this  Mitchell ep on my podcast app is just ad talking.

There was an funny advertisement segment at the beginning of the episode, via the Acast app.

It's a delight to have the podcast back! And great that Buckles is able to get decent guests! The jingles cheered me up too.

For some reason I don't get any adverts on any of my podcasts, despite using a free and pretty basic podcast app.

Admittedly this hasn't given me cause for complaint before, but now I'm furious.

Found Mitchell surprisingly low energy and low on laughs. His take on environmental activism was pretty embarrassing too. I'm happy Buckles is back though, obvs. Because I love him unconditionally.

I'm also baffled by these advert claims. Don't podcasts just have whatever ads the podcaster puts in them? Adam's done lots of sponsored ads before and they've always been part of the podcast.

The world is much worse than you think. Podcasters usually put ad insertion points in their podcast, which allows the podcast aggregator to insert targeted ads at that point. I get adverts for Citizen's Bank Boston when I listen to UK-based podcasts.

I've been hearing those recently, and they usually fuck up the insertion points and place them mid-syllable.

You're blowing my mind.

I've always just used the vanilla Apple Podcasts app on my phone. What hellish means are people using to listen to podcasts that punish them with these ads? And why?

And if this explains why I didn't hear this funny ad, why is it that it's apparently something Adam made instead of a targeted third-party thing like an ad for Citizen's Bank Boston?

But surely Buckles doesn't use ad insertion points, since all his ads are done by himself?

Yeah, I'm not sure either. As Gerald points out I don't think Ad inserts ads this way.

In the version I downloaded from the RSS feed, the ad in question comes between "Wait" and "Continue" in the music that plays at the end of the chat. In the version currently downloadable from the RSS feed, there is nothing between "Wait" and "Continue", and it's also got a different ad at the start. I guess maybe he put the wrong ads in and had to change it, or something?

Anyway, FWIW, here's the ad: https://www.dropbox.com/s/rk5afgjtg7viihj/Creaky%20Voice%20Podcast.mp3?dl=0

That podcast parody was an excellent little freebie, wasn't it? Really surprised no one else seems to be doing stuff like that (unless I'm out of the loop) because the scene seems ripe for it.

Hollywood Handbook does it quite a lot.

I've tried to understand HH for years, dipping into episodes where I'm familiar with the guest, but I just don't get it. I think it's possibly super-irony at a frequency I can't hear.

I feel the same about Chapo Trapo House.  Don't have a smegging clue what anyone's cracking up over.  Maybe listening to that without a twitter account is like trying to play Duck Hunt without a light gun.

I imagine sometimes the American who listens to an episode of Athletico Mince and thinks "what in the sam hell is this?". And suddenly the world seems fair again.

Right. So that's not the ad I had at the start of the Acast app version and I didn't get that ad at all.

Ayeeee. So it seems Acast are dropping the ball a bit, a couple of other podcasts I've been listening to in the last couple of days have had ads dropped in arbitrarily, where in the past they've always been in the correct place.

The most recent RHLSTP: Herring's intro and promo, later a proper Acast ad inserted, immediately followed by Herring doing the same ad, but with his own voice and different wording.

Buhhh?

Never really known anything about Ruby Wax but she seems a bit narcissistic and annoying.

Yeah I had to give up. Nothing she says is awful or anything, she’s just a bit overbearing.

Relistened to that Adam & Joe Chrimbo pod from just after the time Ad's dad died.  Fuck me I forgot how raw that was.  All the laughs and silliness had that desperate but healing edge in the company of one of his oldest of friends.  And Joe's reaction at the end when Adam's voice starts faltering, something like, '...you don't have to hold back,' was so sweet after their previous frosty encounter.  That was when I really fell for the pod.  And being told that Adam loves me, bye never hurts, either.

Does Ruby Wax mention Jung at any point?  That seems to be her thing now.  Mentioning Jung.

Can't remember Jung getting a look in, but probably only because every other sentence is her mentioning that she studied at Oxford.

Might just be a way of removing distractions to focus on his book, but it's a bit disquieting all the same. Given it's Buckles, I'm half expecting a detailed breakdown of his reasons in the next podcast intro.

Hope all is well, anyway - Adam has given me more hours of audio fun than I can count.

I really enjoyed Adam’s rapport with Ruby Wax, and I thought she was a very interesting and funny guest. Her sharpness kept him on his toes and it was nice to hear him in a less cosy context than usual.

I don’t blame Buckles for keeping schtum about Louis Theroux being one of his best and oldest friends...

Ruby Wax's weird ability to anticipate every one of Buxton's questions when he was only a syllable in was almost like a real-life superpower.
