Outside of before a movie starts at a theatre I can't think of the last one I've had to watch.

TV? Streaming without commercials.
YouTube? Ad-block.
Only during Flames game but as of Feb 1 cable is donezo, no commercials for me now

I watch all my hockey via the NHL official streams which cut commercials out completely.

I've almost eliminated advertising from my life completely.

Instead of the radio I listen to my iPod or podcasts where I can skip any ad-read instantly. It's glorious.

Yup same here. Now the closest I get to a commercial is the "Commercial break in progress" splash screen

God I can't stand that Tim Horton's commercial with the guy slurping the coffee. That has instantly skyrocketed to the top of my list of commercials I will have a burning hatred for forever.

150 GB!

Spotify or other streaming options aren't practical for me. Nor will most of my music be available through those services.

That being said, I'm basically all podcasts now unless I'm at the gym where I upload music to my phone still.

Is there an easy way to skip the ads in a podcast? I just advance 15 seconds and hopefully it times up properly.

No, that's about it. You can finetune the amount of time you skip. Usually takes a couple presses forward and 1 press back.
