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.
Time for another SoundCloud Voices people, and this week we are back on the comedy podcasts, featuring possibly one of the best comedy podcasts out there! It’s The Bugle! Having recently moved from The Times newspaper, we are happy to announce that The Bugle will live on, on SoundCloud! Featuring comedians Andy Zaltzman and John Oliver the transatlantic region’s leading bi-continental satirical double-act, leave no hot potato unbuttered in their worldwide-hit weekly topical comedy show. The show which tackles the latest craziness in current affairs regularly gets over 2 million downloads a month and is well worth a listen. Check out their new shiny site TheBuglePodcast.com where they are looking for donations to help support the ongoing production of the show #savethebugle, and like them on Facebook too. Take a listen below to the latest show.
Next up is a podcast, from The British Comedy Guide, that is really is quite bizarre, called Me1 vs Me2 with the prolific podcaster Richard Herring. To summarise the show, its basically Richard playing himself at snooker and commentating on it! In the face of some harsh iTunes reviews Richard has even gone so far as to threaten that he will continue doing the podcast until he gets zero listens! I now challenge you to not listen! Here’s the lastest episode below, and make sure to check out some of the other shows from the British Comedy Guide!
And finally, there is Pappy’s Bangers and Mash. Where the format is hosts Ben, Matthew and Tom have a chat at the start of the day, then they go away and write some sketches and then come back and incorporate them into the podcast. It basically entails some silly chat and banter. Well worth a listen!
