I do not prefer politics over my music

Casual Listener

The worst thing that Spotify can do, is when I am listening to a playlist, that is playing in the background, and when I return to it: I am plasted with Michell Obama Podcast. Not only I didn't ask for it, you pushing a narrative that's against my view point which ruins my listening experience. I ask, politely, bombshellz is my username, do not do it again.

Unfortunately there is no way to dislike podcasts or remove them from the suggestions. The best option is to just ignore it.

I even got some of that nonsense in my notification bar, as well as on my homepage. It's funny that they suggest her, who I definitely wouldn't listen to, but they don't suggest Dr. Steve Turley, Anthony Brian Logan, or Tim Pool.

Hey @bombshellz 

 

Is it an advert for the podcast that you're getting, or did the podcast start playing itself instead of your playlist?

 

Just asking, because  no content that you haven't selected yourself, should start playing on its own. Ads are.. well, not always pleasant. : )

Thanks Sabastian, no, I had a playlist playing and I wanted to change songs. When I switch back to the APP, it had Michell Obama instead.

To clarify, I don't mind the ADs at all, the issue is, my playlist got switch with Michell Obama's playlist with me requesting it. I don't listen to spotify that often, that's why I don't have a subscription, and I accept the compromise. That was just going to far IMHO. Considering the climate.
