>> DISPATCH AS FOLLOWS:
Wanted to gauge the feelings of the “family” here really quick on a development that we’re looking at undertaking with the Podcast team. We’ve been approached a few times before by companies to provide advertising within the podcast episodes – and have, to date, turned them away because of the concern of what that would do to the overall feel for the content that we provide to everyone here. However, recently, we have received an invitation to become partnered with a company that looks to bridge the gap between content creators and a variety of different sponsors and advertisers. What this means is, instead of random advertisements, the team will have a say in who we support and how we support them in our content.
This brings up the question of ‘why.’ To be clear, none of the FFC Podcast team is in this for personal gain. We aren’t looking to use money from here to pay bills – the intent is to cover the costs of running the show and invest in making the show even better for everyone.
This is where we want to hear your thoughts – we have always tried to run this community based off the feedback that we receive from everyone here, and this decision is no different. We will do our absolute best to ensure that any advertisements that we use in the shows are as unintrusive as possible and only from companies that we ourselves have experiences with. The plan is to continue making content that everyone here enjoys for as long as we can – and this is something that will go a long way towards increasing that longevity.
