I've been listening to a lot less podcasts and reading a lot more books recently. I figure it's due to the increased presence of advertising in Podcasts; like I actually have an ethical problem with adverts.

Dystopian future: books / stories are centralised via Amazon who will interrupt your reading every x pages or y minutes to show you an ad.

All I'm asking for is a mobile app which funnels podcasts, adds a layer of community-contributed metadata which marks up ads, and lets me skip them automatically.

Has anyone started a Podcast called "Pop-Cultural Marxism" yet? Missed opportunity there.

I mean, I know every Middle-Class White Liberal Dude has a Podcast "analysing pop culture in a humorous way" but surely we can start appropriating that machinery?
