A widget that enables you to display your latest podcast from a category or featured podcast utilising the Blubrry PowerPress plugin’s default player.

The widget displays the featured image and excerpt from the post together with a link through from the post’s title. Underneath the post’s excerpt is displayed a media player (the default media player set in your Blubrry PowerPress plugin) linked to the podcast’s MP3 file set in the post via the PowerPress extension.
