Recommendations appearing for a podcast I don't listen to

Recommendations appearing for a podcast I don't listen to

My Question or Issue

A few months ago I listened to one or two episodes of this podcast, and afterwards I stopped following it and have not interacted with it (listening, following, saving etc) up til now. But my Home page on my Spotify app on Mac keeps showing a section for recommended podcasts similar to that one, with the header "Popular with listeners of [insert podcast name here]". The thing is it's right at the top of my home page and it's quite annoying to keep seeing it whenever I use Spotify, and especially since I haven't interacted with that specific podcast for a long time and I don't even like that genre of podcast. And I don't consider myself a "listener of [that podcast]". I've tried fixes that I've googled but it doesn't work, and neither does uninstalling and redownloading the Spotify app. Does anyone know how to get rid of this section or get it to recommend something else? Thanks!
