[Podcasts] Bring Podcasts to MENA region

If you browse around the forum you will find posts dating back years from customers from the MENA region asking for "Podcasts" option, but Spotify has persistently refused to offer any solution. This issue has nothing to do with licensing, Spotify offer this service to pretty much every where else.

 

Most of the podcasts are freely & readily available on other platforms (Apple, Deezer etc). And podcasts like JRE are exclusive to Spotify, so no excuses here.

 

This discriminatory behavior by some executive at Spotify is denying MENA people from enjoying the full Spotify experience.
