Nieman Lab: Podchaser, an “IMDb for podcasts,” is building a big tags-based database to help people discover shows . “The ‘podcast discovery is broken’ maxim, now frustratingly familiar, has spawned no shortage of efforts looking to solve it. A new podcast database and discovery site, Podchaser, which is billing itself as the “IMDb of podcasts,” is also taking a swing at the issue with what it says is a new spin: a focus on podcast episodes rather than entire shows, as well user-generated tagging and episode-level reviews.” This doesn’t address all my concerns about podcast search, but it sounds like a good start.
