We’ve had quite a year at ECHO! As the holidays approach and we wind down for a little break, we are taking a look back at the past year. On the blog here and through our social channels, we have had the pleasure of discovering great stories about stories. Here are some of the things we shared that our fans and followers liked best.

We changed our look this year with a refreshed brand. As we evolve as an agency, so does our awning! Don’t miss out on our updates from the office and beyond, follow us @seenatecho.

A few of us on the ECHO team are big time podcast fans. A great discovery this year was Criminal, from the Radiotopia network. We were thrilled to see this tweet get love right back from the show, and from other like-minded Phoebe Judge fans.
Good #podcasts tell #stories. Great ones come through your earbuds and transform you. The episode Bears, Birds, and Bones from the true crime podcast Criminal will change your perspective on the world. https://t.co/MN4rbHwGre @CriminalShow #podcasttuesday pic.twitter.com/oOLLkkCeSt— ECHO (@echostories) April 17, 2018

Most Popular Email Newsletter
Was it the click bait-y headline that did it? Maybe. Our July 6, 2018 email called “How to Grow Old” was the most opened newsletter of 2018. It did feature some excellent stories, including this one on How to Grow Old from the reliably wonderful website brainpickings.
