For example, one of the most popular podcasts, “New Technology Helps Cut Fuel Costs, Emissions, in Trucks,” had 3,700 downloads in three months.

Our Energy Efficiency Markets Podcast began in 2008, before we launched this website. It was an experiment, and our voice-over, music, and technical advice all came from a high school student and family member who is a musician. We’ve since spiffed it up a bit, adding a new voice-over and new ways of recording.

You can participate in Energy Efficiency Markets Podcast in a number of ways. First of all, if you’d like to sponsor a podcast–meaning we’d insert your ad into one or more podcast episodes–email [email protected].

If you’d like to suggest a podcast idea, email [email protected]

And…we’re always open to suggestions for how to make our podcasts better. A few years ago, a listener complained he could hear our podcast host typing while interviewing, and we eliminated that background noise! Please send along your ideas, suggestions, comments, complaints, and compliments to [email protected].

And thanks for listening!
