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.

Happy Anniversary! Today, SoundCloud Voices turns 1. For the past year, we’ve featured Community members who create spoken word content…this week  we take a trip back to the good old fashioned podcast – of the entertainment variety. We’ve got two great comedy podcasts for you and a great new film review podcast. Allow us to introduce Super Ego, Penn Jillette’s Penn’s Sunday School and The Empire Film Podcast.

First up is Mr Penn Jillette’s comedy talk podcast entitled Penn’s Sunday School. Penn is an illusionist, comedian, musician and author. You might recognise him from Futurama, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, or Sabrina the Teenage Witch, too name only a few of his appearances. The podcast is part of Adam Carolla’s ACE Broadcasting network and also features co host Michael Goudeau. The concept of the show is discussing the news of the week but often drifts into anecdotes and stories such as, featured in the podcast below, Penn’s clash with magician David Copperfield.  It’s an excellent out and out talk podcast full of jokes and funny stories. Take a listen.

Next up is Empire Magazine’s Film Podcast. As the biggest film magazine expect the latest views, reviews, stories and news on the upcoming films. They even have great guests on the show such as actor Guy Pearce and director Mike Newell, features in the podcast below. Having just started just over 4 weeks ago, the podcast has already had great reception and lots of listens.  Take a listen too!

And last by no means least comedy podcast Super Ego. Described as such – Profiles In Self-Obsession. Improvised, analyzed and brought to you by Drs. Jeremy Carter, PhD and Matt Gourley, PyT with Resident Specialists Mark McConville and Jeff Crocker.  In short the show is an improvisational, character based sketch podcast.  Each episode takes a look at a a particular psychological disorder in the form of a case study.  It features brilliant guests such as Greg Proops, Patton Oswalt, Drew Carey and Paul F Tompkins to name a few.  Take a listen to March’s episode below!
