Audioburst Introduces Finder for Searching Podcasts
Audioburst has released a beta version of Audioburst Finder, an embeddable web search widget for podcasts and conferences.
Audioburst Finder enables a keyword search across podcast episodes so visitors can find and listen to engaging audio bursts (bite-sized clips), sampling content before subscribing. An integrated social sharing feature enables listeners to share their favorite bursts directly to social media.
"The Audioburst Finder brings us one step closer to solving the challenge of audio discovery," said Amir Hirsh, co-founder and CEO of Audioburst, in a statement. "It opens a window through which listeners can search and sample creators' content before subscribing. Additionally, as brands build out audio strategies and produce high-quality content, Audioburst Finder gives them a new way to repurpose the content and engage consumers right from their corporate website."
"Over the past four years I have had the privilege of interviewing more than 200 guests and recording hundreds of hours of insights they offered," said Bret Kinsella, founder and editor of Voicebot.ai and The Voicebot Podcast, in a statement. "However, many of those insights are buried at 44 minutes and 23 seconds into a 70-minute interview. It is nearly impossible to go back and find what was said when you are looking for it. And transcript searches are OK but don't have the fidelity of the original recording and are hard to share without added work. This is a problem for podcasters, and is even a higher mountain to climb for listeners looking for the gem in your interview. I am excited that Audioburst Finder for Podcasts makes this all dead simple. We can finally find the exact segment of audio content we need almost instantly."
