It's that time of year again! At the end of each year we like to take a moment to look back to see which blogs, videos, and podcasts were the most popular with our audience, and then count them down in New Year's Fashion.

In today's Top Ten we're listing the all-time most popular episodes of The Automation Podcast using the combined stats from TheAutomationBlog.com, YouTube, and Audio Podcasting platforms we publish to (iTunes, Spotify, etc.)

This year we've also added “Episode Awards” to call out episodes that deserve extra mention for making this year's list:
