Amazon Music Podcast

The official Xbox Podcast was available on Amazon Music but is no longer supported. I hope Microsoft & Xbox can bring back the official Xbox Podcast to Amazon Music. Microsoft & Xbox customers listen to podcasts through different sources. Although Music and Podcasts on Amazon Music are not as good compared to Spotify and Apple, Amazon Music is still a viable platform for audio entertainment.
