What are companion ads, and how do I use them?

Companion ads in the Augury system are ads that run across two separate ad zones as a pair. You will never hear one part of a companion ad without hearing it’s companion (haha, get it?) later in the episode. 

For example, an ad for a movie trailer might preview a trailer in a preroll ad zone, and advise the listener to “stay tuned after the show for the full trailer” which would then play during the postroll ad zone. This type of set-up is a companion ad between preroll & postroll, though you could have a companion ad across any two different ad zones.
