My Question or Issue

I frequently listen to the JRE podcast.  Every once in a while, after your inserted ads are played in the middle of the podcast, the podcast will start over again.  This should not happen.  We should not get these ads in the first place but that has been hashed out repeatedly and you refuse to acknowledge the problem.  Now, to make matters worse, the podcast will start over with no user interaction after having to listen to the same commercials over and over.  Joe Rogan is not reading the draft kings ad so it is not added by the content creator.  It gets so old listening to the same ads over and over again.


I am sure I will get the same canned algorithm response, so rinse and repeat.  Long live Spotify at ruining the JRE listening experience.

Hi there @fifthandgoal,


Thanks for reaching out to the Community.


We're aware of this behavior an currently looking into it. Make sure to head here and share the following info in that thread so we can further investigate:

  • Device + OS version
  • Exact Spotify version
  • Is this happening only to a specific podcast?
  • Any troubleshooting that you've tried

We'll be on the lookout.

CarlosE - For how long should you be "looking into it"
I'm paying for Spotify, and Iäve done it for many years. Only because I don't want listen to commercials. So give me what I pay for.
