Spotify and the bullshit podcast ads situation
Spotify is a premium service. Spotify also has an AD-supported plan. I hate advertising. I'm happy to pay for Spotify Premium. Spotify allows you to stream podcasts. Podcasts have ads. I don't mind having to skip ad reads. Hell, I don't mind listening to some ad reads because some podcasters are hilarious and they are very creative with their ads. What I do mind is being served, by Spotify, trash ads even though I'm a premium subscriber. Their justification? That you pay to get music ad-free and podcasts aren't music. GTFO. The other justification is that it's up to the content creators to turn on ads. Again, GTFO. I'm so bothered by this that I'm genuinely considering stopping using it altogether.
