Podcast has been removed from listings

Unsure if this is the correct place, but I'm not getting a response via the podcast email.

 

I have been running a podcast for the last 6 months and this is sent via RSS feed to Spotify.

 

Yesterday I was checking the dashboard and noticed that the podcast wasn't there. I checked the Spotify app and noticed that it wasn't searchable either.

 

The share link given by Spotify is also now dead: https://open.spotify.com/show/07JawrKkcDDQHrnecffsTm

 

Any advice would be great as I've had no issues for the last 6 months, so unsure what's happened.

I also just had the same thing happen to me. I host on spreaker and distribute to spotify. I hope these come back.

I heard back from them yesterday with the following:

We have removed your podcast from Spotify for Podcasters. Spotify for Podcasters isn't intended to be used as a music distribution tool, regardless of the licensing state of your music.

In an effort to enable all creative artists the opportunity to live off their art, creators who wish to share their music on Spotify should use a music distributor.

We recommend using one of our preferred providers. Check out Spotify for Artists to get started.

As a record label who hosts mixes from our DJ's, it's a bit of a **bleep** situation tbh.
