I’ve done a lot of them! And, like my column, they cover many different topics (see All My BAM Radio Shows – Linked With Descriptions).

So, to make it a little easier for readers/listeners, I’m going to start thematic lists with links to the shows covering a general topic.

This post is the first of those lists, and it’s including the shows I’ve done on teaching English Language Learners. I’ll add links to related shows as I record them:
