Stitcher Premium removes all banner ads (visual ads) and audio ads that run between shows. However, podcasters record ads as part of their podcasts - if these shows are not a part of Stitcher Premium, we cannot remove their advertisements. This is how those podcasts gain revenue to produce the content.
Also as part of Stitcher Premium, we offer an extensive catalog of ad-free shows and exclusive archives that have had their ads removed. These podcasts will have that golden 'Stitcher Premium' stamp on the show icon.
If you do find that a Stitcher Premium episode (marked with the golden ‘Stitcher Premium’ stamp on the show icon) has an advertisement within the show, please let us know! If you could provide the timestamp of the advertisement, this will help the team to better troubleshoot. You can contact us at email@example.com.
