I have premium, but am hearing ads on podcasts for sports betting

Why is this happening all of the sudden?  I pay not to have ads, but I have been getting this past couple of days.  Account is in good standing and active.

Hi there,

 

Spotify Premium reserves the right to insert ads on exclusive podcasts, and ones that they produce/own. Ads will never be inserted into music streaming. I took a screenshot of their terms, and here is a link as well:

Thanks,

Not gonna lie, that's pretty annoying.  At least they don't lock in the ads and make them un-skippable.

I am definitely getting un-skippable ads now. All the playback controls disappear from the app while they play, and in a car the Fast Forward button stops playback altogether. 

 

Do we know if the free tier includes more ads, or does the podcast listening experience make no distinction between free/paid tiers? If there's no difference there's no reason to keep paying for what is no longer a premium experience.
