I would lovery to use spotify for all my podcast needs like I do for my music need, but there are to many podcast that I listen to that are not on spotify. These podcast are some of the most popular out there. The joe rogan experience, the giant bomblast, and the rooster teeth podcast just to name a few.
I remember joe rogan flat out saying he doesnt like what spotify does as far as paying the artists it utilizes and wont be on spotify. So I'm guessing podcasters have to manually concent and as this isnt a popular feature yet, they may be unaware that spotify is even an option for podcasts. Who knows others may be boycotting as well.
Big hitters in the podcast world, none available through Spotify. Maybe NPR forbids Spotify but I wonder why Stephen Dubner doesn't allow syndication through Spotify? Unless adverts violate Spotify's terms and conditions...
Yeah, I listen to TAL and Freakonomics. The podcast feeds are freely available, and they make their money through ads and donations, so it doesn't make sense that they wouldn't want to be in Spotify. TAL is no longer an NPR podcast anymore, by the way.
ty.. so basically if you get your podcasts from spotify exclusively you'll be missing out on the most valuable podcast data that exists.. recently my default switched over from google play to spotify.. and i couldn't understand why NONE of my podcasts were available.. now i get it..
That is quite a bummer that Joe Rogan is not on Spotify, since it is on "most popular" category on most of the podcast listings out there. Lack of these essential podcasts is annoying and really inconvenient since one have to use a different application on listening podcasts.
Does anyone know wheter Spotify keep an official listing/poll on "most suggested" podcasts or is there any way for commoner such as I, to affect witch podcasters they are making deals with.
