Searching for Podcasts

A podcast is a web feed of audio or video files placed on the Internet for people to subscribe to or download. Sounds neat, but how do you find a podcast that you might want to listen to or watch? Podzinger is a search engine that allows you to search for podcasts by typing terms into a "Google-type" interface. I typed in "law librarian" (with the term in quotes) to see what would come up. Using this search, I found "Check this Out," a weekly podcast from Jim Milles at the University at Buffalo Law Library. Podzinger is a great way to find podcasts that might be of interest to you.
