greg-git is available in the archlinux aur repository and builds 
successfully on archlinux.  No mention of search capability in the 
program no man page either.  Maybe info documentation or a doc file in 
/usr/share/doc/greg or /usr/share/greg but I haven't searched that far 

I have surfraw installed over here for searching and can run something 
google <search string> on the command line and search google without the 
need to run lynx since surfraw runs lynx once lynx is stored in the 
right export variable.  When I search for podcasts I usually pass google 
<search string> NEAR podcast to narrow down some sites; google tarot 
NEAR podcast could be used to find tarot podcasts as one example.  Once 
that's done I open each site and find the podcast urls.  and rss urls 
and I move onto each and hit the equals sign and check out the last line 
of text on the page starting with U
RL: and see if that url ends in /podcasts/ or .mp4 or .mp3 and if so, I 
save that in my podcasts feeds file and run the podcast catcher and see 
what if anything loads onto my computer.
