I know there are a lot of folks out there that are annoyed by the advertisement selection that they are exposed to. I am also one of them. I have a suggestion, though I'm sure someone must have thought of this already.
Give us a thumbs-up/thumbs-down option for advertisements! Not all advertisements are terrible, but some of them are so offensive to people that it's driving them away from your platform. Or at the very least leading them to mute their device for a couple minutes until the ads are done playing. I'm sure the ad payers probably don't enjoy forking over money simply to be muted and ignored by your listener base. At the very least give them the exposure to those who are actually going to listen to them, and help them avoid those who are going to avoid them!
