Ad-Supported media is where good content goes to die. The advertising model hamstrings creators and forces them to conform to banal, "brand safe" expectations. Alternative Internet Radio is just that. The alternative.
Total. Creative. Freedom.
The shows you find here are ad-free. They are supported by ourselves and you, our loyal listeners. The "Value-For-Value" model of podcast finance was started by Adam Curry and John C. Dvorak and has been picked up by other major podcasters like Tom Merritt, Brian Brushwood, and more.
This means that the shows are the products. Not you, the listener. We will never pimp you out to advertisers.
And, since we have no advertisers, we get to say whatever the fuck we want, whenever the fuck we want. No one can censor us or threaten to take our money.
