Remove obscene podcasts from home page?

Lightningtow

I've been getting podcast suggests for a podcast called "Hentai with Senpai" that has a picture of an anime girl with ejaculate dripping out of her mouth it's disgusting. I don't want to see that garbage on my home screen. I stopped listening to podcasts months ago and I never listened to ANYTHING even close to that. Is there any way at all to get rid of it? Even if it's getting rid of all podcast suggestion period that would be okay.

 

 

And don't tell me to go vote on it. I'm asking to not have pornography recommended to me. That is NOT something I have to vote on.

 

Also, at the point it filters the word I used to describe the cover picture (I had to edit my message so it was understandable), its a good indicator that it isn't good to recommend to people who never asked for it.

I contacted support and they that there's no way to remove that individual podcast, or to remove podcasts from your home screen. But if you listen to one podcast from a bunch of different genres it screws with the algorithm. I haven't tried it yet but it sounds plausible. My idea was to set it to like meditation or something flowery and opposite-of-hentai and let it play overnight. 

 

Basically, just listen to stuff to **bleep** with the recommended algorithm. Hope this helps someone

Actually, I found a way to fix that. The exact same thing happened to me as well. The system of Shows To Try is a recommendation system and mainly works off your artists. If you don't want that in your home page, go to Artists and select new ones. Preferably, unrelated to such content like Country or Rock is. Your Spotify should refresh and it'll disappear. If it ever appears again, change the artists

I'm constantly afraid to open spotify at work cause I get podcast recommendations like this one (see attached image). It's outrageous that we can't even get a feature to hide podcasts just cause we need a safe-for-work app... The picture and headline I'm showing here is nothing compared to the one that I had a few days ago at work (translated to English, it said "I ALWAYS SWALLOW IT").
