There should be an option to prevent certain podcasts (or all podcasts) from appearing in the Spotify-created playlists, and suggested podcasts on the frontpage. I don't want to see NPR when I go on to Spotify.
I still don't see a solution to this question on how to mute or delete podcast mentions which clutter my timeline. The push of say, Joe Rogan podcast is too strong in search. And it persists even though I don't follow after listening to it once.
Yes. I enjoy the Daily Drive playlist song selections for me (although it can be really repetitive from day to day), but it is not good at picking podcasts I'd like and it's frustrating that I can't indicate that. I've tried following podcasts in the hope they'd at least put ones I've liked in there. Between the repetitive selections and the annoying true crime, market updates, and sports podcasts, I don't use the Daily Drive playlist as much as I did when they first started offering it.
Thanks posting here in the Community! We'll gladly shed some light on the situation.
Keep in mind that we have a Hide feature in the app on iOS and Android for songs in playlists that you haven't created yourself. Note that this feature is not available for podcast episodes. It seems however that other Spotify users also mentioned they'd like to have the option to hide or disable podcasts and posted an idea. There is also this idea about adding the possibility to customize the entire Home Screen. This seems more like what you have in mind, @Maffs.
You can add your support there by up-voting the ideas. We'll inform on any developments there, if there are any. You can find more about how your ideas help us improve the app in this Spotify Answer.
Hope you find this useful. Keep us posted if you have any questions.
Have a nice day!

so when is this going to be added? imagine being recommended podcasts about rich influencers and youtubers when all you listen to is stuff about music films history and games- like i dont want to see some millionaire lady talking about vibrators on my way to work
