from wagtail.wagtailcore.models import Page
class ArticlePage(Page):
    def has_asciinema(self):
        for stream_child in self.content:
            if == 'asciinema':
                return True
        return False

And then add asciinema on your page on demand:

{% block extra_css %}
  {% if self.has_asciinema %}
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="{{ STATIC_URL }}frontend/asciinema/v2.4.1/asciinema-player.css">
  {% endif %}
{% endblock %}
{% block extra_js %}
  {% if self.has_asciinema %}
    <script src="{{ STATIC_URL }}frontend/asciinema/v2.4.1/asciinema-player.js"></script>
  {% endif %}
{% endblock %}
