Descriptive titles please!

I only want to listen to some content, based on the content not the speaker. Please make the titles information about the content so it's easier to determine what interest me. Unfortunately I do not recognize the names of any of your speakers so that does not help me understand whether or not it's an episode I'd like to download.
