As regular readers know, I do a weekly ten-minute BAM! Radio Show with guests who are writing contributions to my Education Week Teacher column. I started it about one year ago.

My teacher advice column is popular, but I had figured a few hundred people listened to the show each month.

Boy, was I wrong!

BAM! sent me listener statistics for 2014, and about 31,000 episodes are listened to each month! I was shocked.

In light of Serial, I guess there is something to that idea of podcasts becoming very popular these days….
