SOMEONE ELSE'S PODCAST

If you are trying to embed someone else's podcast, it all depends on their instructions for embedding. For example, here is Bonni Stachowiak's Higher Ed podcast embedded in Canvas following her instructions:

Podcast: StoryLab 

Basically you just need the "embed code" provided by the podcast site somehow, and you can paste that into a Canvas Page. It usually works just by clicking the icon you would use to insert media and pasting in the embed code there. Click on the embed tab and paste in the embedding code from the podcast source:

A PODCAST YOU CREATE

A great option for creating and hosting your own podcast is SoundCloud! SoundCloud is a very popular platform for podcasts, and it embeds really well in Canvas.

How-To: Add a SoundCloud Playlist: StoryLab 

The nice thing about embedding a SoundCloud playlist is that you can keep adding more audio to the playlist (multiple episodes of the podcast) without having to do any more uploads to Canvas; the playlist will update wherever it is embedded. 🙂

Here are some tips on doing podcasts with SoundCloud:

Hi  @gmccall ...

If you have the audio file ready to upload to your course, you could use the following Guide: https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-12981-415265825  Would this work for your needs?
