LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--PodSearch™, a newly-launched interactive directory for podcasts, gives people easy-to-use keyword and category search tools to find podcasts they can enjoy based on any of their interests. Time Magazine recently noted that, “whatever your tastes — and wherever you like to listen — there’s no shortage of options.” Yet, with so many choices, many would-be podcast listeners simply don’t know how to choose. PodSearch aims to change that by putting the power of advanced search technology to use in helping curate a personalized collection. It even has a “How To” section to show people how to listen to podcasts, who have never done so before.
PodSearch, available free to listeners through a website and mobile app, is designed to help everyone discover podcasts that reflect their personal interests and keep them in-the-know about new podcasts as they are released. PodSearch goes beyond the typical top show lists, with unique and easy-to-use search features like keyword search, detailed categories, new shows, links to many different listening apps, links to tour dates where the host or show is appearing and can even generate personalized podcast recommendations based on the user’s interests. PodSearch also features a connector-button on podcast pages to connect advertisers with podcasters, for companies who want to advertise on those shows.
According to CEO Dave Newmark, “Sixty percent of those surveyed say they are aware of podcasts, but only twenty four percent listen on a monthly basis. Clearly,” he continued, “podcast discovery needs to be de-mystified.” Co-founder Patty Newmark said, “Podcasters are creating amazing content in all forms, including comedy, politics, crime dramas, cooking, and just about everything in between. Our hope is to bring that content to millions more people.”
So, with more podcasts available now than ever before, PodSearch is the easiest way for people to connect with those that they will enjoy listening to during their commutes, workouts, lunch breaks, travel, or leisure time at home. People should head straight to PodSearch at www.podsearch.com, or download the free PodSearch app for their iOS or Android devices, to start discovering great podcasts today.
