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=Yw03YHZiQuyZeF1hzaKCFQhere is the same podcast on another platform, with no ads integratedhttps://youtu.be/EfpFM712_AU?t=3084I 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.
