Podscope Podcast Search Engine

Podscope is the first search engine for podcasts.

TVEyes, which has been indexing television and radio broadcasts since 1999, crawls the web with Podscope looking for podcasts and creates an index against every word, thereby making the contents searchable. The user can search on a term, generate a list of results ranked by a variety of methods to find the most relevant podcast and click to play or click to download.
Because Podscope uses speech recognition to index podcasts, there are some recognition accuracy issues. A search for ebooks yielded zero results. I find it hard to believe that no one has mentioned ebooks in a podcast.

A search for lifedrive also yielded zero results, but a search for life drive comes back with relevant results. Keep this in mind when podscoping.

When you do get search results, you can click on a hit to get a mini-player with a short audio excerpt of each hit, as well as a text description of the podcast and links.

Happy podcast listening and podscoping.
