Looking for a New Podcast? Try This.

With the number of podcasts increasing exponentially every day (well, not quite–but the numbers are going up fast), it’s getting harder and harder to find something new and industry. Just we see with music, discovery is the big buzzword.

This is where Listen Notes comes in. With a database of 322,000 different podcasts featuring 1.7 million episode, the site allows you to search by name, topic, people and more. If you’re just feeling random, you can click on “Trending Searches” to see what other people are looking for.

A caution: you have to be very specific in your search terms. For example, when I searched for ongoing history, I ended up with all manner of history-related shows, none of which included my radio show. Enclosing the term in quotes (“ongoing history”) got me to where I wanted to go. I’m guessing the Google search tricks work with Listen Notes.
