Podshow Suck Less Removal

In this week’s Marketing Over Coffee, we discuss the Podshow Suck Less promo and how some folks from New England Podcasting and Twitter would no longer like to hear the ad, now that they know about it. Here’s a recipe for eliminating the Suck Less promo or any pre-roll ad using iTunes on the Mac.

Go to: http://dougscripts.com/itunes/scripts/scripts09.php?page=1#degenre
Get the Batch Trim Start or Stop Time (Seconds) v1.0 script, download, and install. You’ll find this will install the script in the little Script menu in iTunes.

Put all your Podshow Podcasts in a folder. Select them all.

Run the batch script. The Suck Less Promo is 59 seconds long. Put this in the dialog box asking how many seconds, then click the +Start button. Every podcast you’ve selected will now have its start time adjusted to be 59 seconds into the show.

Bear in mind, this will work for any pre-roll ad and will work for audio OR video without damaging the source file itself, so you can skip past advertising you don’t want to see. After all, new media is about having it your way, isn’t it?

If you’d like to do this on Windows… umm… someone else with Windows and iTunes experience will need to chip in below in the comments.
