Imagine a site that lists every podcast appearance of your favorite people so you don't have to subscribe to endless shows on countless apps. The goal is to mirror the "IMDb Filmography section" (which is really just an up-to-date list) for podcast guests.

Hi Product Hunters 👋, I'm KP, a 4x no-code maker, a product geek and a practitioner of the concept of learning by doing. First off, shout out to @bentossell 👊 for hunting this! Today, I'm thrilled to introduce to you my latest creation "appearedon.com" that was born out of a personal itch with podcasts.As a podcast lover, I have noticed that there's a tremendous rise in the number of new shows coming out daily. Due to this phenomenon, it has become very noisy out there with over 80,0000 podcasts distributed over at least 7 different apps/players. (Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, Breaker, Stitcher etc)The problem I kept running into was NOT being able to find out if my favorite speaker (let's say Naval or Nir Eyal) was on a new episode somewhere. I would have to wait for him/her to post on their social media feed to learn about their appearance on a show. The other option was to subscribe to countless shows and hope they "appear" on my selection. I saw the gap for a simple site that is focussed more on the interesting people and less on subscribing to shows/episodes. The closest example I had in mind was the "Filmography section" of an actor listed on IMDb. This seemed like a fun experiment so I built it using a set of no-code tools.The result is what you are seeing today, appearedon.com, a site where you can follow all the appearances of your favorite podcast guests.I ran into quite a few obstacles as I was doing this in a no-code way. It took me so many tedious steps to get to the first version (I posted my entire process here ) and I couldn't be more thrilled to bring this to you!The first version has only a limited set of guests which is essentially people I follow/listen to frequently on my podcasts. Feel free to add your favorite guest recommendation and I would be happy to bring his/her profile if it attracts enough interest. Here's the link to where you can add a new guest. Thank you for checking this out & hope you'll find some value as you browse around. Would love to hear your feedback/comments about the site, my process or even no-code in general! ❤️🙏

@thisiskp_ this is awesome! First, I'll echo your shoutout to @bentossell -- he's been an awesome person to get to know, and has really been a great voice I think in the no-code area. I've had some awesome convos with him over the past couple years about it. Secondly, I love this idea. It's something I think about all the time, especially as we take a look at the amount of podcast guests who not only continue to be on new episodes and shows, but prospective new guests that are just beginning their foray into the podcast-guesting space. I've done a number of podcast guestings myself this year, and as I continue to try and create more value by doing more, I'm staggered by the range and depth of the podcasting market. There's definitely an opportunity here, and I'd be curious to see how this continues to evolve and grow. Awesome job dude!

@adammarx13 Thank you Adam. Refreshing to hear your pov. The podcast market is already enormous and inevitably going to get nosier than ever, Hence, this site to keep tabs on the people you want to track. Appreciate your compliments. And yes, @bentossell is a blessing to the no-code space!

@thisiskp_ Breaker already supports this feature... are you simply pursuing this path because Breaker doesn't focus on your use case sufficiently?

@chrismessina Thx for the comment Chris, was expecting someone to ask this. Breaker does notify you but wanted to build a more open database with more focus on people versus shows.

Would love to see suggestions of other podcasts or people to follow based on my existing followed settings. Is that on the roadmap? Looks great!

This is exactly what I need as I listen to so many podcasts in my way to the office. Now I can peacefully browse the list of episodes in terms of guest who I love to listen. Thanks for creating AppearedOn 🙌🏽 KP, so glad to see you becoming a webflow master in such a short time!! Congratulations on the launch and looking forward to see more guests like Gary Vee, David Goggins etc.

@5harath Thank you so much Sharath! Appreciate you standing as an accountability buddy and pushing me to ship this, especially the last sprint! Adding your suggestions to the roadmap Trello board. Cheers

Hi! Congratulations on launch! I like the idea! Will check this out. How do you plan to arrange a content moderation? As I see now anyone can update a speaker profile

Whenever I'm listening to one of my favorite podcasts and find a guest that I really enjoy, I always have that thought "How can I listen to more of this guest?". Appeared on seems like the perfect solution to my problem. Love the design, and can't believe this was built with no code! Congrats on the launch @thisiskp_ !

@siggi Thank you so much. I had the exact use case in mind when I began to realize my frustration. Finally just took the matters into my own hands and built it the dorky way but hey it still works ;) (#LongNoCode)

Hey KP. Love this product because of the opportunity for discovery. In thinking about this at scale (meaning the whole world of awesome people on podcasts), could you think of the following feature to help us find "needles in haystacks": A user defined feature that allows users to identify key time blocks in the podcast that they think are valuable. This feature should allow them to give commentary on what was so important. For example: "22:03: John Doe mentions the steps necessary to build your brand DNA." Aside for the benefit of user input and contribution, this will will allow folks to help you generate "cliff notes". Don't forget to let users come back and upvote contributions others make. Perhaps let folks create accounts with Google, Twitter, etc. Hope this helps.

@edmundamoye Either way, I think it's definitely an interesting addition. Would love to give it a shot in the future roadmap. Thanks for the suggestion :)

@thisiskp_ yea. Users looking at their fav personalities can do that freely but reviewers have to use google/twitter sign on.

This is great! This election season, I’ve found it helpful to hear directly from presidential candidates via their podcast interviews. You get so much more out of a 60 minute interview than a 60 second sound bite. This will let me ensure I’ve heard from everyone on the ballot.

@alsargent Thanks Al, that's an insightful application. Didn't think about that but yes users can keep tabs on their fav politicians! Feel free to add your recommendations in the "Add" page :)

Wow, this is exactly what I've been looking for! As a no-coder myself I've been thinking about making products that scratch my own itches, but so far I've encountered many setbacks. Your work truly is an inspiration though!
