I'm really curios, and hoping people will answer honestly. Do you listen to LTB podcasts more because you're interested in the content, or to get the magic word?

Please don't be negative towards anyone who says it's the magic word -- I welcome the honesty.

@cryptonaut - it would be nice if there was a poll function on the forums that allowed each account to vote once, and, of course, kept people's votes private… any chance of adding polls in the future?

    I listen to the majority of the shows in their entirety, I definitely listen to all of yours. You do some great interviews and I know I'll enjoy them anyways so there's no point in searching if I'm gonna stream the entire thing.

    There's very few shows that I just can't stand, actually just one which I won't name. Other times the content is just not interesting to me so I may skip around, but it would have to be painfully uninteresting to get to that point.

    I like shows that get into technical aspect of bitcoin, theory, and direct use cases. Some of the libertarian agenda sounding shows are interesting in concept but just come off as sounding like conspiracy theorist ramblings to normal people.

    do you klnow that you wont get a lot of LTBc by spamming? instead you'll get spam flag and that will only decrease your payment.

    I wonder if its the same show i prefer not to listen to also... I would say i listen to very few shows only for the Magic Word. Most shows i listen to for the content.

    There have also been more than one occasion where some shows were so good, i completely forgot to enter the MW and was completely ok with that...

    I was a LTB purist, and the magic words were (almost) my only motivation for checking out the other network shows. But I now enjoy Bitcoins and Gravy almost as much as LTB.

    Never have managed to get my counter party wallet linked, so for all I know the words are "wasted" anyway.

    I did it at first for the magic word, but now it is for both. As much as the listening to podcasts is enlightening and educational about most of the going on's in the crypto world, some casts are more about the m word than others.

    Some podcasts are more technically focused on the crypto world, so I might listen till the word, and then depending on what I'm doing I might carry on listening or I might stop-but only really if the podcast is focusing around something I am not wholly interested in-the recent one by Beyond Bitcoin is a good example since it was heavily technically focused and I lack the knowledge to grasp most of what is being said or how relevant it is right now to crypto.

    Otherwise most of the podcasts I have found very interesting, if not for the content outright(interest, knowledge etc), then definitely for the hosts that take them. Some podcasts I listen to twice, like the Philosophy one with LBT or the one with the Canadian parliament- our parliament in SA is so inept our president has forgone attending!

    Normally about 80% for podcast news and info and 20% for magic word. If the podcast subject is not to my liking then I stop after the magic word, but that has only happened a couple of times.

    Any time there's an interesting topic or guest, I'm listening to the content. I can't keep up with all that goes on, so I enjoy hearing the interviews, presentations, rants and raves, and offhand commentary. There is one series on this network that I do not enjoy, so I don't even bother listening any more. Personally I don't feel like it's worthwhile to scan through there looking for the magic word, and so I just don't collect the listener reward for this one show. Not a biggie.

    I listen to them when Im in the kitchen making food and when i drive to work. They're interesting but sometimes the subject doesn't fit my interests then I turn it off after the magic word.

    I think I am in the lead when it comes to magic words (81 entered at the end of the last week). There isn't an episode that I've not listened to in it's entirety (I did miss a few magic words though). I've considered not entering a magic word for episodes that I am not impressed with. There is only one that I can think of off the top of my head. I'm not just about the magic word though, I regularly listen to Bitcoin News Weekly, Epicenter Bitcoin, and the World Crypto Network (no magic words there).

    The stats page gives some interesting info. You can see that the top ten ltbcoin earners do not really rely on the magic word to generate coins (they all have less than 60 magic words).
