"For years, Spotify's flagship music playlists like RapCaviar, Hot Country, and ¡Viva Latino! have helped listeners discover their new favorite artists and can't miss music," the announcement states. "Now, we're bringing the same expertise that we put into our curated music playlists to podcasts."

While most of the playlists are specific to each country, there are three "flagship" playlists. They are Best Podcasts of the Week, a collection of hand-picked episodes from a wide range of genres that will update each Tuesday; Crime Scene, which includes popular true crime-related content updated weekly; and Brain Snacks, updated every other week and featuring factoids for listeners to learn something new in 20 minutes or less.

Each of those Spotify playlists is embedded below:

To see all the playlists in the U.S., open Spotify's search tab, click "Podcasts" and then click "Podcast Playlists."
