Also as you can see, pure trance radio is a weekly podcast from DJ Solarstone and no podcast option other than his playlist is there.. Same with all my other trance podcasts... 


Same with 1001Tracklist's Exclusive Mix and Madison Mars' House of Mars. I think what might be common for a lot of the podcasts that have disappeared is that they were podcasts featuring music.

And still no answer from Spotify. I also hate that if you try to discover new podcasts through the "Music" section, you are only suggested whatever shitty music people hear in your area, instead of dividing it by genres and tailoring to your music tastes.

Why aren't we getting any answers from Spotify on this matter... Seems music related podcasts especially trance have completely gone but no explanation as to why.. Surely someone at Spotify can clarify as to why....??

Same problem happening for my podcast to. It was my DJ sets as episodes were on spotify for a long while and suddenly it dissappeared.  And answer from spotify. If this is how they treat paying customers, I will definitely reconsider continueing

I got this reply just now from Spotify. Suddenly they decided to do this after so long allowing music podcasts on their platform.  very dissappointing

Where is pure trance radio and all the other music podcasts I subscribed to. Every single podcast whoch I saved and downloaded are gone. I used data to download them and Spotify just took them away. Whats the point in paying for Spotify when they just take away what you listen to the most and with no communication either. I have seen others complain about this too so its not just me. Why take something away from premium customers who pay for the service. I'll be moving to DI.fm and pay a subscription to them if this doesn't get sorted. This has made me change my mind about Spotify. I always recommend Spotify to people and let them use my app and try it out. Not anymore. Not after taking all the epic music podcasts down. This sucks!

I think we might have been misunderstood. We im this forum are not creators as far as I know. We are listeners. I'm not talking about 3rd grade podcasts here I'm talking about the podcast shows of one of the biggest house labels in the USA. Their show simply dissapeared and their response is that they cannot use Spotify for podcasts. I was thrilled with this option that lasted around 2 months.
