Google Podcasts just made all my subscriptions disappear - any help?
4
It looks like Google has decided I'm under 18 as all my podcasts I'm subscribed to that have "Explicit" tags have disappeared. I only have 2 subscriptions for podcasts still visible and I assume that's because they are "clean" (free from any Explicit episodes).

I still have some downloaded episodes from these removed podcasts, but if i tap on them I get this message:

Content Removed - we've restricted some content for people who aren't over 18

FYI I'm in my 30s and have been using Google Podcasts since I got an Android 18 months ago, with no problems.

It looks like an algorithm has incorrectly singled me out and I can't see any way to correct it.

Is there any way to fix this? Or should I just abandon Google Podcasts and download another podcast app?

Hi James Ellen, would you mean checking one thing for me before I asked my colleagues about the issue here? Can you please verify that your birthday is correct in https://myaccount.google.com/birthday (meaning it is at least showing you are over the age of 18)? 

And does your account have another Family Link account attached to it so meaning you are the guardian but you do manage a few minor person accounts?

Hi firehorseart, thank you for letting us know! I believe that you are right that setting is on by default which is why you had to make sure you turned off the setting that was about autofilling in payment information.
