My Question or Issue

Hi, 

Fo no reason, explicit podcasts would show up on my home page which is embarrassing when in public, family or with friends. There's no option to hide or change algorithm preference (rather to watch othe podcast to re fresh algorithm) which is inefficient in my opinion. I have seen other issues marked "not right now" but I believe this should be a priority as there are folks of every age on this platform and Spotify believes it's customer should have right to choose their content.

I had issues like this too but there is not any solution to be honest. The only thing I did was find out the podcast provider using links in the podcast and have them take it down.

There's already plenty of ideas about blocking explicit album artworks:

Unfortunately, none of them has been accepted by Spotify due to not receiving enough votes.

I’m having the same issue. Why do we have to send this to vote? That’s antique and out of context. Who wants to have a pair of bare **bleep** or two guys kissing with tongue on the home page? This type of issues are something that Spotify been ignoring saying that doesn’t have enough votes when adding a stupid “remove” button is something simple to add. 

I’m also having the same issue with recommended explicit podcast and it’s really bothering me that I can’t remove this from my home page
