You can show ads in your sidebar through a simple plugin called WP125. This plugin allows you to add and manage a collection of 125 pixel graphic ads. One note I forgot to mention in the screencast is that each ad must be exactly 125 x 125 pixels in size. Otherwise you'll end up with strange looking spaces in your sidebar images.
