You can even place your player behind a password-protected portal. Wherever you need the player to work, it will work.
You can also trust your player will show up correctly across every social channel and your branding will remain intact. Also, any shares of your podcast will go back to your site, not ours. You can even customize how your users are able to share, letting them cut up snippets and share them like that.
