Locking Accounts from playing specific podcasts

Locking Accounts from playing specific podcasts

Hello Fellow Spotify Podcast Listeners,


I recently ran into an issue where I was listening to the Distractible podcast and upon going to the next episode, it simply would not load at all. I had waited about 20 minutes to see if it would at least load anything at all and it did not. I tried using both Wi-Fi as well as cellular data but this made no difference. I tried downloading the podcast to see if I could listen to it after downloading but it would not download at all. I tried streaming through different devices such as my phone, web browser, and desktop application for Windows but this did nothing. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the application to clear out any old caches, but this did nothing. I tried uninstalling, restarting my phone and PC (for the desktop application), and reinstalling but this did nothing. I looked around a little and it appears that if you are unlucky enough to be picked by RNG your account gets selected as being locked out for listening to a podcast you were listening to at the current time. If unable to create a new account and pay for a new subscription, what should I do?
