My Question or Issue

When starting the iOS App of Spotify there is one line of Podcasts right on the front page under the headline "Shows you could like" ("Shows, die dir gefallen könnten"). I see it every time I open the app. It shows several podcasts I absolutely detest, because of their political content. 

 

I can neither block these single Podcasts out of my user experience, nor can I deactivate these very silly Podcast suggestions. I am obviously not interested in these radical Podcasts and thus "you could like" seems totally insensitive to what I really like. 

 

Please allow blocking entire Podcasts (like albums) from appearing in my Spotify account.

Please allow the removal of the quite annoying and frankly not working Podcast suggestions.

 

I do not care about Podcasts here. I want music only and no political agenda of someone else I detest on my apps! I use Apple Podcasts for spoken audio and political content, it does not push political Podcasts aggressively, where the contents could disturb me.

 

Please be sensitive to the experiences, needs and opinions of all your costumers, not just loud Podcasters. I did not invite them in.
