About Us

Search Engine tries to answer the questions that keep you up at night. A podcast made by humans that provides the answers that neither artificial intelligence nor actual search engines really can. 

Named one of the best podcasts of 2023 by Vulture, Time, The Economist, and Vogue

Here are some nice quotes about the show:

"I love explanatory journalism, and it’s explanatory journalism at its best. Simple questions that unfold into wondrous answers and, more than that, explorations."

- Ezra Klein, host of The Ezra Klein Show

"I like that Search Engine is still figuring out what it can do with this new podcast form it's invented, and that every time I download an episode I really don't know what to expect. What's rarer than that? In podcasts or in anything?"

    - Ira Glass, host of This American Life

 "Search Engine’s particular spark comes from the way the team injects a sense of genuine discovery into the act of unspooling. This is a show that works to give you a good time, always hustling for your attention as it peels back layer after layer."

- Vulture, "Search Engine Is the Spiritual Successor to Reply All"
