To those that want a longer podcast but want it to be free with more ads... how do you know that advertisers are knocking down the Lovecast's doors trying to get in? I doubt the existing sponsors will pay double to get a second airing. So that means new sponsors will have to come on to support the added production and bandwidth for the longer show. And if you listen to podcasts like I do, you realize the pool of potential sponsors is small. Squarespace, Extreme Restraints, Adam and Eve, Audible, that's about it. The only perennial sponsor of podcasts I haven't heard from on the SLC is GoToMeeting (probably not a good fit) and the ProFlowers/Sherri's Berries company (who I have never used, but I have not heard good reviews of). All the top podcasts I listen to (TAL, Maron, Nerdist, TWiT, MaximumFun) fight over the attention of these few sponsors. And who knows if these or other companies are willing to sponsor an explicit podcast like this.

I think it is perfectly reasonable to pay something for all this content; I look forward to hearing Dan every week. And hey, bonus episodes would be fun too. Keep up the good work!

Excited about the new venture into paid podcasting, I will definitely be a subscriber. But one note: please make it as accessible as possible. I know it is tempting to just make it iOS/iTunes only, but please keep us Android (and Windows Phone and Blackberry and PC-only) users in mind. Can't wait!

I usually love your opening comments, but I had to skip after the 5th minute of covering enormous saline balls.

(jump to 7:40 to skip the grapefruit balls discussion)

Man, if I *yep* heard *mmm* one more *yep* Web 2.0 social media *yep* buzzword I was *mmm* going to smash *yep* my cell phone *mmm* and its "platform for social currency" against *yep* the wall. *absolutely*

I totally understand that she was treating this as another interview where she is free to bring everything back to what she is plugging, and where she is supposed to dominate conversation since the interviewer is just there to ask questions. But her nonstop talking after the last caller where Dan just wanted to say go get therapy was the last straw. But keeping her on for the advice seemed like a bad plan.

Dan, I also would have liked to have you address how starring in a pornographic movie is sometimes a scarlet letter that forever scars your chances to do some things (i.e. teachers fired after porn of them is found), and how her site hopes to change/counter that high bar to entry. But, maybe you tried and you couldn't get a word in edgewise.
