The show name you see in your player’s progress bar comes from the currently playing file’s ID3 tags (or the title you entered into SoundCloud). You can override this show name in the Default Settings or by adding a tag to your shortcode.

Setting the Default Show Name

[smart_podcast_player url="http://www.soundcloud.com/askpat/" show_name="AskGizmo"]

This changes my podcast's appearance from this:
