INVENTED: Spark London Searchatron 3000

Today I learned how to create a search box for a podcast feed, which means all those lovely tags I’ve spent years writing for Spark London stories have not been in vain.

It’s using Yahoo Pipes, and it looks a bit like this:

…all of which means I can now unveil the SPARK LONDON PODCAST SEARCHATRON 3000. Type in a location, an emotion, a year, a theme… and listen to the resulting story. Enjoy!

PS Many, many thanks to Media Talk listener Robert Freemaño for the tip-off on Yahoo Pipes.

PPS if any clever coders have suggestions for improvements, please do let me know. I am at the very edge of my knowledge here.
