Apple Podcasts episode topic viewer

We liked Bumper’s blog post about Apple Podcasts topics so much, we decided to write a simpler way to see them.

In short, they’re topics (using the open Wikidata topics tool) that have been discovered, by Apple, from the audio of the show. The folks at Bumper explain more.

The data is only in the Apple Podcasts web code, and isn’t visible: but we have built a little ugly tool to make them visible without any of that fiddling about.

Step 1: Search for a podcast


Note: this uses unofficial Apple API calls and may break without warning. Not all podcast episodes have topics assigned to them - try The Daily, Tai Asks Why, Up First, or Podnews Daily (!) to see the topics for yourself. We only return the last 20 episodes.
Privacy: Graphics on the podcast search come from Apple's website.
