Hello Spotify Team, I have thinking how you are missing a very power feature to develop in your streaming platform.
This is the “radio programs for music lovers”, they are usually one-hour session were a presenter ( narrator) talks about a band or a music gender,( history, context, dates, names, etc ) during the program songs from the artist or bands are played.
I think Spotify have the full potential to develop this new product, you have a large base of songs and also you are now a top choice for podcasters, because they receive an income from your platform, so why don’t join then both.
with this product podcaster can add music content inside their podcast, so when they do that, the royalties of the music are paid for Spotify to the music artist, and the podcaster receive the royalties only for the content that he produce but not for the music.
I attach and example picture of how it will be a program with this concept, 4 mini pod cast plus 7 songs, everyone will receive the royalties only for the content that they create, but both can have a benefit from each other when the program is created and user enjoy both.
