I tend to prefer that type of arrangement (sponsorship) rather than kind of random advertising because, if you’re signed up with a random group of advertisers you never really know what you are going to get in your podcast and I’m always a little worried, as a producer, of getting that one ad that just offends my entire audience and destroys the listenership I have. So, I’m always a little leery of that. I like to think that advertising is not the best way of supporting a podcast. Unfortunately, no one has really come up with a much better idea.
