How to search for podcasts

Let's imagine that you're trying to find a few promising podcasts in the niche that you're targeting. The home screen is the first place that you'll land in Rephonic and that's where to begin your search.

Enter a topic and hit enter to begin searching for podcasts. Rephonic looks at podcast titles, descriptions and the show notes of recent episodes to find the most relevant matches. By default, the results are ordered by a combination of relevance and estimated listeners per episode.

Let's see how the results look:

You may see an icon next to a podcast's name if we think that they accept sponsors or advertisers.

You can also search podcast Titles and Publishers if you already know what you're looking for. Or you can search across Episodes.

Narrow down your search using filters

Rephonic supports a large set of advanced search filters that allow you to narrow down your search results. For example, if you only want to see shows in the Business category so you can click the Categories filter button and click that.

You can also use multiple filters at the same time. For example, if you're looking for podcasts in the Business category that also accept sponsors, simply use both the Category and Sponsored filters together.

Adding private notes to a podcast

Whether you're working alone or in a team, it can be useful to add private notes to podcasts if, for example, you've contacted the publisher and found out more information.

While viewing any podcast click on Add a Note to add a private note. It will instantly appear on the page for you and other members of your team.

Notes are private and they will only appear for you and for other members of your team.
