    Hi, I’m writing a post about This American Life at the moment and wanted to use the widget they offer so anyone can embed any episode of This American Life into a web page or blog. I copied and pasted the HTML script into my blog post but the This American Life player is not showing up when I preview the blog. I’m a newbie to this sort of thing — am I doing something wrong?

    The blog I need help with is culturallife.wordpress.com.

    PS. This is the HTLM I am trying to embed into my blog:

    <script src=”http://audio.thisamericanlife.org/widget/widget.min.js” type=”text/javascript”></script>
    <div id=”this-american-life-423″ class=”this-american-life” style=”width:540px;”></div>

    Thanks timethief. I had a read through the link you provided but I’m unsure how else I can embed the This American Life audio without breaching copyright.

    PS. If I use the SoundCloud Audio Player to embed the audio in my blog, I presume that’s okay with all copyright holders?

    It may or it may not. Almost certainly it’s okay, but I’ve seen a very few media organizations go nuts if the actual digital delivery system varies. I say try it.
