PluggdPluggd is a new podcast directory that lets users to discover, listen to, and share podcasts. The site creators hope to make exploring podcasts easier to bring them to a broader audience.

“We believe that podcasting has tremendous potential, but it is currently too difficult for average people to find podcasts they are interested in and listen to them,” they note. “At Pluggd, we’ve put a lot of energy into trying to make things easy and accessible for the mainstream Internet user. We’ve focused on really basic things like making sure the site is easy to navigate, free of clutter, and provides fast web page downloads.”

Pluggd also hopes to combine search with social networking.”We think discovery for content like podcasts should combine social networking and search. We allow users to subscribe to podcasts with a single click; allow users to bookmark a podcast they come across while browsing the web with a single click; allow users to easily share their subscriptions, bookmarks, playlists, etc.; and post comments about a podcast channel or episode to their personal blog.”
