A lot of my complaints with Spotify and their podcast plans would go away if they allowed you to add your own RSS feed.
I have 4 shows that now have custom RSS feeds, so even if I wanted to use Spotify, I couldn’t. I can appreciate their attention to the platform, but I want them to be good stewards to the community as a whole.
I just subscribed to the ATP.fm premium membership, and it was one click to add it into Apple Podcasts. It couldn’t have been an easier experience.
