Is it possible to search for podcast episodes by topic?

One would think this exists somewhere, so maybe I just didn't do enough googling, but is there a way to search for podcasts or radio segments by topic? Say I want to find a podcast, talk radio segment or recorded lecture tagged with "Philae landing"...how would I go about doing that without googling a specific show like "Science Friday Philae landing"?

Sleeping with Podcasts

For the past couple years I have gone to sleep with podcasts on (usually sports or news podcasts) and find it really difficult to go to sleep without a podcast on. I have tried sound machines and they do not help. No matter how long I sleep, I generally wake up feeling fatigued, and can have brain fog or feel tired and am tired throughout the day. I have never been a particularly great sleeper, but I am at a place that I need to address the fatigue. I am going to go get checked by a sleep doctor in a couple months (switching insurance and travel schedule), but in the meantime I am assessing things I am doing that may cause the fatigue. Does anyone sleep with podcasts on? Could this be an issue? My thought is maybe my brain is semi-engaged because I am listening to the conversation. Total guess, but thought I would reach out and see if anyone else has dealt with this. Thanks!

American podcasts with Southern accents?

What podcasts feature speakers with Southern American accents? I love how these accents sound and want to listen to long stretches of people speaking with them. I'm from New England; the accents I'm thinking of are anything from the southeast US, West Virginia, Texas, and inbetween. [more inside]

Looking for French Podcasts (Non-radio)

Hello, I'm looking for some good French podcasts that aren't simply radio broadcasts, but are more conversational/comedy/interview in style. I'm thinking of podcasts like: Judge John Hodgeman, WTF, Filmspotting, Comedy Bang Bang, Savage Lovecast, Lexicon Valley, My Brother my brother and me. Does such a thing even exist in France? I'd appreciate some help if you know of anything!

If Podcasts Were Hot Dogs, I'd Be Kobayashi

How do we appropriately ask for t-shirt design ideas on our podcasts?

I run a podcast network, and we're revamping our merchandise. We have no designers on staff, but we have lots of designers in our audiences who love our shows and have great ideas, and we'd like to tap their expertise. I'd like to ask for design idea submissions from designer-listeners on-air without asking for spec work (or seeming to). How, specifically, do we make that call to action - what language should we use? (The work, incidentally, is paid.)

Candid conversations about black-white relations in the US

As a white foreigner who spends much of his time on a college campus where black people are few and far between, I feel like there's a lot I don't understand about black-white relations in the US. I know my history and understand the social and political issues involved reasonably well, but what I'm missing is a sense of how these things play out in the everyday lives of ordinary people. I'd like to hear conversations and stories, in podcast form or the like, that touch on this stuff. The more candid, informal, personal, and no-holds-barred, the better. [more inside]

Podcasts exploring how a topic interesects other areas

One of my favourite Youtube series is Extra Credits. This series is centered around games, but it explores any number of related topics from games in education, the business of making games, careers in the game industry, religion, psychology, social issues.... Are there any other podcasts or video series where the creator has strong expertise in a particular topic, but relates in to a broad range of other areas?

How can I be a well-informed UK voter?

I'm a new UK citizen, and I'd like to stay informed so that I can vote wisely (not just this week but in all elections to come.) Unfortunately, a lot of political coverage seems to focus on "Will talking about this policy help the party win?" while I'm more interested in "Will implementing this policy be good for the country?" So, what podcasts, Twitter feeds, or other resources tend to offer thoughtful, in-depth analysis of different party's positions on various issues? (I'm a big fan of the BBC's "Analysis" podcast, to give an idea of what I'm looking for.") [more inside]

What other podcasts should I listen to?

I listen to podcasts while driving and while cleaning. I currently have 3 on rotation: Welcome to Night Vale, Spilled Milk, and the Metafilter podcast. The latter two I like because I like listening to 2-3 people who get along well chatting conversationally about things I might be interested in, joking, etc. Night Vale I like because it's short enough to listen to in one go and it's a fun set of stories set in a consistent world that I enjoy. Please recommend me some more podcasts I can get on iTunes. Not interested in celebrity gossip, history, dry science, or story podcasts longer than 30 minutes per episode. Especially interested in cooking, parenting, self-improvement, and shows with big archives.

Can you suggest dull and informative podcasts to help me fall asleep?

Sometimes I have trouble falling asleep because I can't stop worrying over issues of the day. I've found that listening to a slightly boring podcast really helps in those situations. So far, I've been listening to history podcasts but I think the technique would work with other subject areas and I'd like to find more such podcasts. I'm looking for intelligent and serious podcasts (little to no humorous banter) on important and/or academic topics. Ideally, the presenters would have monotonous voices and would spend a bit too much time on the dull minutiae, but the subject matter would be sufficiently interesting to help me stop thinking about other issues. I don't want to hear a group of friends or colleagues bantering. I don't want to hear comics interviewing each other. Pseudo-science or woo won't help because I may respond emotionally.

Conversational podcasts?

Looking for podcasts that could best be described as "really smart people shooting the breeze." Favorite examples would the various Slate podcasts that feature three writers discussing a range of topics, as well as NPR's Pop Culture Happy Hour. The subject matter can be about anything, though looking for something a bit more conversational and wide-ranging than, say, a panel of experts discussing their fields. Any suggestions?

Looking for globetrotting (non-news) podcasts

I'd like to expand my podcast listening horizons a bit--as in geographically and culturally. Are there any podcasts that regularly go globetrotting for their non-news stories? Makes regular attempts to be less WEIRD? Radio Netherlands Worldwide for example had the environmentally themed Earth Beat and a TALish The State We're In. They were both amazing, but canceled due to budget cuts. I'm also on a crime and mysteries kick, so something like Interpol's greatest hits podcast (they don't AFAIK) would be awesome.

Not Loving Podcasts in iOS 7

Actually, I'm kind of not loving anything in iOS 7. Perhaps it is the shock of the new. Or just realy ugly design. Anyway, that is not my problem. My specific issue is that iTunes is now apparently arranging my podcast feed at random, rather than alphabetically or any other sensible system. Looking at online forums, there doesn't seem to be a way to fix this. Is there? Or, failing that, is there another podcast app that would work better for me?

Can you recommend a music podcast that would be good to run to?

I'd like to listen to more music while running. I'm getting a little tired of my comedy podcasts (we must be approaching peak banter). Can you recommend a music podcast that would be good for running? Alternatively, what inputs would give me a Pandora station that would be good for running?

Suggestions For Positive Intellectual Input, Please?

I need to go on a SEVERE media diet, but I crave media that is intellectually stimulating. On TV, I limit myself to culinary and travel shows, a form of "Mind Sorbet," if you will.
