Hackaday editors Elliot Williams and Mike Szczys traverse the hackerscape looking for the best the internet had to offer last week. Nintendo has released the new Game & Watch handheld and it’s already been hacked to run custom code. Heading into the darkness of winter, this artificial sun build is one not to miss… and a great way to reuse a junk satellite dish. We’ve found a pair of smartglasses that are just our level of dumb. And Tom Nardi cracks open some consumer electronics to find a familiar single-board computer doing “network security”.

The current podcast embed doesn’t show how long the podcast it, so I can’t plan when I have the time to listen to it.
Try this https://overcast.fm/+lrbRwLILc
That doesn’t solve the issue.
When I’m browsing Hackaday, I’d like to see how long the podcast is, so I can decide whether to listen to it here and now or later. I don’t want to find it here and then look it up on an entirely different site.
