Don't understand what's going on with search

Trying to search for something that appears in the description of a local video is failing.
After coming across it via the search API, it also looks to be affecting searching through the ui as well

for example:
The Internet's Own Boy - PeerTube exists, and has the word Swartz in the description. When searching for swartz in the search bar it returns other videos, and several copies of this video hosted on other instances but not the local video with the text in the description.

Trying the filters, counterintuitively it appears the local video will show up when deselecting instance and selecting vidiverse instead,
