My Question or Issue

Why am I getting ads from local stores on podcasts?
These are not integrated into the podcast, nor are they on any other platform this podcast is on?
I pay for premium, I DO NOT expect spotify to serve me ads during a podcast.
here is an example of podcast this has happened on:
https://open.spotify.com/episode/6uweEvdBY3LyAvq8d6ShCk?si=Yw03YHZiQuyZeF1hzaKCFQ

here is the same podcast on another platform, with no ads integrated
https://youtu.be/EfpFM712_AU?t=3084

I have attached a recording of this happening as well. 
I am incredibly displeased at this and will be considering moving to another platform for podcasts as a result.

Hey there @Noelg14,

 

Thank you for your post here in the Community.

 

While Spotify doesn’t play ads that interrupt the music listening experience of Premium subscribers, some podcasts may include advertising, host-read endorsements, or sponsorship messages.

 

You can read more about it in the status update here.

 

If you have any questions we're always one reply away.

 

Take care!
