Huffduffer - Easily Embed Professional Podcasts

Huffduffer is a simple, free, service that allows you to create podcast playlists and embed podcasts into your blog or website. Finding podcast content and developing playlists is a simple matter of using the search box. The real utility of Huffduffer is the ease with which you can embed a podcast recording into your blog or website. To do this simply select the podcast you wish to embed then find the embed code provided by Huffduffer in the lower-right corner of the page. Then just copy and paste the code in the same manner as you would use for a YouTube video. I've embedded a sample podcast from American Public Media below.
