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
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!
We just wanted to follow-up on and confirm the response from our Creator Support team which some of you might have already received after enquiring about why your podcast has been taken down. We're copying it below for clarity:
Spotify for Podcasters isn't intended to be used as a music distribution tool, regardless of the licensing state of your music. In an effort to enable all creative artists the opportunity to live off their art, creators who wish to share their music on Spotify should use a music distributor. We recommend using one of our preferred providers. Check out Spotify for Artists to get started.

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.
