Adjust ad volume

You are literally making me hate LinkedIn! The ad is too loud and I'm afraid of damaging my ears, so I only save your podcast for when I'm in the car. Love the podcast though. Two stars until that is fixed.

Ads are so loud

I get what they are doing, just please turn down the volume of the ads to the same of the podcast. Solid podcast, 4 stars till the volume is fixed. Dueces✌️

15 Five Star Ratinging on a 2-minute Intro Podcast?

15 Five star ratings solely on a 2 minute intro. Give me a break. Looks like everyone in The Economist podcast division, their friends and family got the email begging "Please rate us 5-stars!"
