I was wondering what the easiest way to add details of the latest podcast to the header of the website would be? Ideally it would display something like the episode number and the title of the episode, either linking to the permalink page for the podcast or just directly to the mp3 file.
I'm very familiar with PHP and can code anything up, but I'm just not sure what the best way to go about this is. I could write a plugin that grabs the latest podcast from the database and displays the info that way, I'm just not sure if this is the best option? Basically I just need to know the best way to actually access the latest podcast title, episode, and a permalink to it, and then I can display that info however I want in the header.
