(Not sure if this is the right subforum for this, so mods please move if I got it wrong.)

Are there any other search engines or other ways of searching for podcasts other than podcasts.google.com, which is still not very good, though I hope it one day might be?

Importantly, I'm looking for something that allows for searching for individual episodes, as podcasts.google.com does, rather than whole podcasts.

In other words, so that if I'm interested in say the Ottoman Conquests, I can type that into the search bar and it will return any individual episode that any podcast did on that topic, rather than returning whole podcasts (undifferentiated by episode).

Something like the following link:

https://www.ottomanhistorypodcast.com/p/episode-list.html

Or:

https://15minutehistory.org/podcast/episode-26-history-of-the-ottoman-empire-part-i/

(Click EPISODES in the upper right screen corner.)

My Google search criteria = "Ottoman Conquests Podcasts"

= = = =

It would be nice if there was one all encompassing search engine with search criteria that could delve down into multiple websites and multiple levels.

As I understand your requirements, maybe scraping or crawling will be more applicable and helpful.

Python can do such things.

Add your "own" search bar to Python to pass the search values to the code.

The code in the second link (movies) might be closer to something meeting your requirements.

The more specific the search criteria and the deeper the search the more complex it all becomes.

Spotify, Google podcasts, anchor, these will work. If you want to create a podcast go to anchor and it will distribute it to all the other channels.
