Thank you for providing a unified platform for podcasts. However, I don't go to Spotify to play podcasts. I come here - and pay for it, might I add - to listen to music. The only time I've ever clicked a podcast is by accident, and I find it frankly unacceptable that I can hide specific artists, but not podcasts.
I like Spotify (within reason), but I get my podcasts somewhere else. I'm not saying that we shouldn't do podcasts at all, but maybe add a toggle in the profile or the settings to hide all podcasts and podcast-related content. I realise that podcasts are a big revenue stream and thus should be pushed, but I'm already paying for Spotify, so maybe make it a Premium feature?
