Podcast episodes are filled with valuable information, but are very long. Take the IH podcast for example. One episode can have the answers to various questions like "How do you validate an idea?" or "How do you get your first customers?", but those are just short segments somewhere within the podcast. So if you wanted that specific answer, you wouldn't be able to find it besides perhaps searching through the transcripts.
From a podcast host perspective, episodes contain tons of content (around 10 blog posts of content) but all you have is one big episode, so you're missing out on people who are searching for specific things.
My current idea for a solution is a podcast content repurposing platform.
Podcast hosts can upload their episodes, and the episodes will magically be split into smaller audio clips (with text) for specific questions and topics. So a 1.5 hour "Interview with Lynne Tye" becomes a 5 minute "How did Lynne Tye learn to code?", "How did Key Values get its first sale?" etc.
These smaller clips are now searchable on the platform + indexed on google, so anyone searching for "How did Key Values get its first sale?" will be sent to the audio clip from that podcast episode.
This platform is specific to some podcast or community. So IH would have its own version with only IH clips so IH users can search, while the Tim Ferris Show will have a separate version. And everything will be discoverable on google.
Would love to get thoughts on all of this from current podcast hosts as well as podcast fans.
