My Question or Issue

How do I prevent or block certain podcasts from being recommended? I'm sick of seeing the higher ground podcast everywhere on Spotify and want to get rid of it.

Annoying that I get michelle obama s podcast shoved down my throat.  No way to block or remove.

I completely agree. I've never used Spotify for podcasts, yet every time I'm on my home screen I see Michelle Obama recommended constantly, no others like Joe Rogan, whos podcast I actually watch/listen too. Come on guys, mix it up a bit! How about promoting the smaller podcasts too there are some amazing litterally and educational casters out there, give them the spotlight for a while. 

 

Also (but unrelated) what's the point of having the ability to download music for offline play if you (Spotify) are going to stop it playing after ten minutes. Smh.

My issue is with voice commands and similar sounding titiles.

Every morning I ask Google Home to play "Your Daily Drive"

Worked great.  Then...and now...I get "Guy's Daily Drive" podcast.

Now, Guy's podcast is actually something I might be interested in...but I really want the Spotify playlist when I ask for it.
