podcat = the name of our podcast cat 🙀 Would love to see more things to discover on the homepage rather than requiring me to type in anything (mostly because I like curation done for me, but also because I have no idea where to start ha!)
Josh Muccio@joshmuccio · Host of The Pitch
@bentossell this is pretty cool! @mubashariqbal made something similar called Interviewed, but I think it had to be manually curated. Well done @jpwhitaker 🙌🙌 so how does one add this extra metadata to an RSS feed?
John-Patrick WhitakerMaker@jpwhitaker · Dev at Podcat
@joshmuccio - I'm working on that now! currently it just looks in the title/description for known names in my database. It works great for podcasts like Joe Rogan who has regular guests.
Josh Muccio@joshmuccio · Host of The Pitch
@jpwhitaker cool! Doesn't seem to be working for my guests 😟 I put their name in the title and description... See Dave McClure as an example, he was on episode 1 of The Pitch titled "1. Chameleon with Mahendra Ramsinghani & Dave McClure of 500 Startups" and isn't showing up in search results.
Ryan HooverPro@rrhoover · Founder, Product Hunt
Wow, this is impressive. I didn't realize I had been on this many podcasts. Cool use case: find and listen to podcasts from your favorite celebs. Here are a ton of podcasts with Donald Glover (aka Childish Gambino).
Adam Kazwell@kaz · Product manager/observer
@rrhoover love it! can't wait to listen to these pods with Chuck Klosterman: https://www.podcat.com/people/vK...

Hey there! I'm the engineer behind podcat. This is still a work in progress, so I appreciate all feedback! If you have a podcast I'd love to speak with you. Thank you very much for all the support! I'm based in hawaii so I'll be on in the morning to answer your questions.
Kartik Parija@kartikparija · Cofounder @AdoriLabs, Reimagining Audio
@jpwhitaker This is absolutely awesome John! Podcat is a great service, and much needed. We all know how hard every podcatcher, crawler, curator (looking at you @producthunt, EarbudFM, and so many others) repeat a lot of the same work every single time. Podcat should help make things more efficient, especially as you increase coverage. Like @rstankov, I also want to know if you plan to provide an API?
Franco Varriano@francovarriano · Host @ Hack To Start
@jpwhitaker this is pretty sweet! Congrats on the the launch! Would love to chat about how I can help out (I run the Hack To Start podcast). Wanna ping me? Hey[@]hacktostart.com
John-Patrick WhitakerMaker@jpwhitaker · Dev at Podcat
@kartikparija @producthunt @rstankov - Definitely thinking about it now!
tom meagher@tomfme · now is good.
The subway animation in the header is sweet!

@thomasmeagher Thank you! My good friend Abby did all the art: https://dribbble.com/abbylupine
Harry Stebbings@harrystebbings · Podcast Host @ The Twenty Minute VC
@jpwhitaker I love you! This is insane as a podcast maker myself this is so helpful for me. Holy shit, I never knew I had done 70 hours of interviews, I am getting old here! @rrhoover you might have been on a few shows but your interview with @twentyminutevc was the best! ;)
Ross Simmonds@thecoolestcool · Entrepreneur | Giving 💯
I thought of @harrystebbings as soon as I saw this. This will make your stalking pre-interview 10x easier 😉
John-Patrick WhitakerMaker@jpwhitaker · Dev at Podcat
@harrystebbings Aw man I really appreciate it! I really like that hours tally as well.
