Ben SoundCloud Voices

SoundCloud Voices is a weekly Community feature focusing on new spoken word creators found on SoundCloud.  It might be a podcast, radio show, audio book, interview, audio messages, a poem, anything!  Keep an eye out every Thursday for a new post.

This week we are talking food!  Three podcasters in particular are massive foodies and using SoundCloud to shout about it.  Take a listen to them below.

First up is Foodie Out of the Closet.  Hosted by Tarabud, FOOTC is a podcasting focussing on organic farming, organic produce, cooking, fine dining, the impacts of consumption on the planet and sharing secrets on the bay area!

 

Next is WCBE Foodcast a show about all things edible in Columbus.  Covering the best new chefs, restaurants and various food scenes, this podcast is making a name in publications such as New York Times, Chicago Tribune, Saveur and Bon Appetit.

 

And last but by no means least, LA Foodie.  This podcast looks at the restaurants that go by names like grandpa restaurants, time machines, or simply classics.   They are the Googies, the steak houses, coffee shops and snack shacks that make Los Angeles a true foodie’s paradise.

 

If you are interested in trying out SoundCloud as a spoken word podcast platform we are currently running a beta program which you can sign up for via this form.  Successful candidates will be emailed with further details.

    something that interests me about talk radio podcasts is the length. i had recorded some of my own at around 20-30 minutes long, but any time i come across one that’s this long in my own browsing, i’m not that interested. 

    so i feel like under 10 minutes is the way to go, like the first two podcasts featured here. it takes good planning and editing to get it down to that point though.

    I think I agree with you Mr. Tunes. My audio is really based from video I’ve made, so I try really hard to keep below 10 minutes. #Even 10 minutes is asking a lot of people’s attention in this day and age! Tarabud

    I am biased but I agree with you, I see many many recordings in my stream every day and I tend to give recordings shorter than 10 minutes immediate attention and try to save longer audio for later — like weekend “catch-up sessions” for news, long-reads and long-listens.
