Came here to complain about exactly this. It seems about every 3-4 days a new "suggested podcast" shows up on top of my homepage. I don't want these suggestions, and I pay for spotify premium exclusively to AVOID advertisements, not to have spotify advertise content to me.

 

I als notice that "Your Daily Podcasts" is now permanently in my home page on desktop underneath the "Made for you" section, there is no way to turn it off and it can't be deleted or reported. I don't listen to podcasts on Spotify, please remove this!

Hello Daisy, premium user here. I pay for Spotify every month so that I don't see or hear ads. In exchange, I expect a completely ad-free Spotify experience. Lately, my homepage has been showing "suggested podcasts" above my recently played and suggested music.

 

Much like the original poster, I do NOT want to see this. I don't come to Spotify to listen to podcasts, I come for music and I honestly could not care less what kinds of podcasts Spotify has. I understand you might be trying to invite users to check out new podcasts on Spotify, but this behavior is intrusive and unwanted, especially since it's:

1 - distracting and ugly, 

2 - taking up unnecessary room on my Spotify home page

3 - it's not removable

4 - it is essentially advertising, which I'm already paying you money to not see.

 

Please pass this along to your developers and let them know that paying users don't want to see ads, regardless what their managers tell them.

Exactly! Thank you for posting the screenshot. I could go listen to podcast for free in a large number of places if I cared for them at all, which obviously I do not. I have my premium membership to listen to music that I enjoy and vibe to, not to hear people talk and ramble on.
