Podnova is a free online podcasting service for listeners and podcasters. Features include a podcast search engine and directory, streaming audio and a free desktop client for managing podcast feeds.
The package is designed for finding, subscribing, streaming and downloading podcasts via an integrated environment. Users get an OPML link that can be pasted into the desktop client or other podcatchers to sync their accounts for time-shifted listening.
Podcasters can easily submit a podcast URL for indexing by the search engine. There are tools and code for placing a PodNova search box on your own site or sending listeners to a streaming media player via a chicklet.
Overall it provides a one-stop solution that most people will find easy to use.
