If you go to my blog as it is currently setup, you will see the way I am doing things right now is that I have the podcast's logo/image in the upper left corner, using an IMAGE widget box. Clicking the image takes people to the page where they can listen to or download the podcast.
I have seen though on various blogs that some people embed the actual episode file right into the widget itself, so someone could go right there and click play on the episode without ever leaving the page.
How would I do this on wordpress? Would I just use a TEXT BOX widget? I tried to do that and pasted in the html embed code, but all it would do is post a link and not embed the actual player itself.
If it matters, I use libsyn.com to host my podcast/mp3 files. I've embed the podcast episode on other pages before without a problem, so I don't think this is an issue with libsyn or the html embed code I am using.
Possibly I am using the wrong widget type.
The blog I need help with is evilepisodes.com.
