After a few podcast databases disappeared and after I really could have done with one I set upon the task of creating one of my own.

Podsift is at its core essentially just a database of podcasts with an API on it. You then build your site/app/etc on top of the DB.

Additional functionality down the line is the ability to find new podcasts for people to listen to but with the goal of avoiding the standard genre/tag matching everyone else does. That’s not how people discover new podcasts, we’re going to figure out a new way.
