there are so many great diavlogs having to do with philosophy, but it's hard to find them, since there isn't an option to search for "philosophy" as a subject!

any way around this?

You might start with using Google to do a site-specific search (http://www.google.com/search?q=site%3Abloggingheads.tv+philosophy). That's not going to be quite what I suspect you want, which is diavlogs tagged with keywords, which would be a good idea, but maybe the Google results will at least get you started.

Also try looking specifically for diavlogs where the participants include Will Wilkinson, Kerry Howley, David Albert, Dan Ariely, Paul Bloom, Joshua Knobe, Aubrey de Grey, Jonathan Haidt, Sally Haslanger, Jim Holt, Shaun Nichols, Jesse Prinz, Geoffrey Sayre-McCord, Janet Stemwedel, John Wilkins, and in general, looking through the Heads pages (http://bloggingheads.tv/heads/A) for likely keywords.

bhtv really ought to have tag clouds for that kind of thing. There's whole bunch of web 2.0 stuff it could have, come to think of it.

Can you think of any way that we as a community could start building such a thing? I am of the impression that the BH.tv staff has more on its wish list than resources for fulfillment.
