Getting adverts delivered via Doggcatcher?

Hi,
Over the last couple of months, I've been occasionally getting adverts played to me between podcasts. I know they can't be from the podcasts themselves as all my podcasts are English and the adverts are in German (I'm in Hamburg). What's going on?
Further details below.
Thank you!

Tim

DoggCatcher Version: 1.2.4139
Device: Samsung Note 3
Android Build: LRX21V. etc..
Carrier: Vodafone Germany

SUMMARY: Unexpectedly hear adverts

STEPS TO REPRODUCE:
1. Use DC
2. Wait for end of podcast

WHAT HAPPENS: German Advert plays. Details form podcast still shown on screen

WHAT SHOULD HAPPEN: Next podcast episode should play

FREQUENCY: Rarely

SEVERITY: Mildly annoying

The app (DC) is not advertiser supported, but some feed/podcast subscriptions are supported by advertisers and usually heard at the beginning or end of a podcast episode and sometimes within the episode.

So the app has no control over advertiser supported or any feed/podcast's content .....DC uses RSS URL’s provided by the publisher & relies on the publisher's servers for media, you would have to contact the particular feed feed/podcast publisher about this issue

The reason the advertisements are in German is because the publisher is probably using location based advertising

Aha - all makes logical sense. I'll pay closer attention to which podcasts it is. Not that I mind them earning a little cash.
Thank you Wayne!
