I just started a professional podcast for a university, and incredibly bad music autoplays after the episode is done. A lot of the people that I work for don't know anything about SoundCloud, so it not only takes away from the podcast experience but also makes me look unprofessional.
I see that this has been an ongoing issue for years, so I don't think my complaint will solicit change on the part of SoundCloud policy.
I read in another thread that artists are leaving for other sites. Where are they going?
