[Mobile][Other] Remove or manage “Your top podcasts” from mobile home screen

On the mobile app Home screen, “Your top podcasts” isn’t reflecting my most frequently used podcasts. It contains podcasts that I haven’t listened to recently, and yet it omits at least one of the podcasts to which I have listened recently.

 

How is Spotify defining “Top” podcasts?

 

Regardless of this definition, I want to manage which podcasts are displayed on my home screen.

 

Several users have provided feedback on this — and in particular, some users have unwittingly shared explicit podcasts with young children or family members. These people cannot dismiss/forget these podcasts from their home screen. Inappropriate and embarrassing. 

 

Allow Spotify users to manage which podcasts appear on “Your top podcasts.”

For example, this user has one login that they use to play music for both themselves and their kids — and the podcasts that appear on the “top podcasts” aren’t appropriate for kids.

And the users in these threads report that they have podcasts they don’t want to share with young family members.

Yes. Please allow me to remove things that irritate me from the home screen. I pay for the service, I should decide what I want to see. Do it now!

I just want the option to remove podcasts entirely. I use spotify for music and other apps for podcasts. I hate that they have taken over my homescreen.
