NORML’s Daily “AudioStash” Approaches 100,000 Downloads
Washington, DC: Nearly 100,000 listeners have downloaded episodes of NORML’s daily podcast since the program¹s launch in June. The original 30-minute programming, known as “NORML’s Daily AudioStash: The Growing Truth About Marijuana,” is available via podcast and direct MP3 download every weekday at 4:20pm at either http://www.normlaudiostash.com or http://www.norml.org. Archived shows are also available online.
“In just two months, nearly 100,000 marijuana law reformers have tuned into NORML’s daily programming to keep abreast of the latest pot-related science, news, and events information that they won’t find anywhere else but on ‘NORML’s AudioStash,'” NORML Executive Director Allen St. Pierre said. “The popularity of NORML’s daily podcast illustrates that there are large numbers of Americans who desire fact-based, educational information about marijuana and marijuana law reform, and that this population is increasingly turning to NORML and away from the federal government and the mass media in order to obtain it.”
According to tabulations released by Apple Computer’s iTunes Music Store, NORML’s podcasts rank as one of the most popular political audio programs available on the Internet.
Guests on NORML’s “AudioStash” have included Congressman Maurice Hinchey (D-NY), noted travel author Rick Steves, Allen Hopper of the ACLU Drug Law Reform Litigation Project, NORML Advisory Board Member Mitch Earlywine, Burning Rainbow Farm author Dean Kuipers, comedian Tommy Chong, and many others.
