Listen Notes + Ghost

How to use Ghost and Listen Notes together

It’s possible to embed podcast content from Listen Notes directly on your Ghost site via our OEmbed integration.

If you’re hosting any kind of audio content, it’s important to use a reliable service with high-quality performance. If you want to feature podcast content on a Ghost site, it’s possible to use a specialised provider for audio content, and embed their audio player to your site.

Ghost is fully compatible with Listen Notes, a popular podcast search engine where you can search for podcasts or curate your own playlists.

Copy the URL of a podcast page

Copy and paste the url of a podcast page (Example), an episode page (Example), a clip page (Example), or a Listen Later playlist page (Example) to the Ghost editor.

It will automatically unfurl the Listen Notes player using our OEmbed integration.

Use embed codes

For further customisation of your embedded content, you can also use the embed code from Listen Notes.

Once you’ve copied the code, paste it into an HTML card in the Ghost editor. From here you can adjust or add styling to suit your needs:

Publish your post

Ghost interacts directly with the Listen Notes API to retrieve all the correct settings and serve your content in the best way possible.

The url will automatically become an embedded playlist or an episode player, here’s an example:
