So my mother, who has recovered from cancer a few years ago, now got this podcast suggestion on her home page: "The Tumor Tapes". Not funny!!!

The woman is 73 and has never and will never listen to podcasts.

Some other totally ridculous suggestions she's getting:

  • Spanish training (???!?!)
  • Is Life worth a 7? (yeah, nice to show to a cancer survivor)
  • Het Klokhuis (a show for 10-15 year olds)
  • The Psychologist (wth??!!)

I'll probably cancel her subscription and go back to Apple Music. Not as powerful as Spotify, but at least it is not offensive and it is actually about music and not about podcastst.

Please Spotify, just give us an option to disable podcasts!
