I'll really miss this one. The content was great, but I'm not going to pay. Why couldn't they sprinkle 15-second ads through the podcast? It would be easier to listen to such an ad than to fast-forward 15 seconds. It's especially irrititating that I subscribe to XM, where I can hear this on Bloomberg Radio, but need to pay additional money for the podcast. Unsubscribe. Fail.
