This week we are entering the world of radio documentaries and features, created by two of the best in the world. RTÉ, Ireland’s National Radio Broadcaster, and ARTE Radio the French speaking online only radio station. Both award winning creators of amazing audio that we think you should take a listen to!

RTÉ (which stands for Raidió Teilifís Éireann) is Ireland’s TV and radio service. The radio service began in 1926 making it one of the oldest continuously operating public broadcasters in the world.  We are very pleased to show off some of the amazing content they are creating from their documentary wing, an award winning and respected world wide within the radio industry.  Take a listen to this fantastic piece called The Boys of Foley Street. In 1975, for a documentary about ‘Boot Boys in Foley St’ Pat Kenny interviewed four boys aged between thirteen and sixteen. Boot boys were gangs of youths who shaved their heads and wore nailed boots. All the boys interviewed were involved in petty crime and the documentary told the story of this slum area in the North Inner City and the lack of opportunity afforded to these children. Thirteen years later – in 1988 – Pat Kenny and producer Kieron Sheedy went back and interviewed those four children – who were now men in their mid twenties. All four men were unemployed. All four had been to jail. Twenty years on from those second recordings – Documentary on One’s Ciaran Cassidy – is making a follow up documentary – wondering what happened to these children?

Now moving from Ireland on to France with ARTE Radio. Created in 2002 by the European Cultural TV channel ARTE, ARTE Radio produces original creations (features, dramas, short pieces) with no format, no commentary and no music, so it’s like your are there listening in! ARTE productions include sound postcards and poetic pieces, features and dramas, political satires and plain silly stuff. Beginners and professionals alike contribute, under ARTE’s supervision. Take a listen to this set below which are all short sounds features, we particularly liked the piece called New York Stories.

SoundCloud Voices this week welcomes a behemoth of a comedy network All Things Comedy.  Only just launched to the world a couple of weeks back the network features a wide variety of comedians and shows; 18 comedians and 11 channels to be precise.  Featuring the likes of Bill Burr, Al Madrigal (from John Stewart’s Daily Show), Harland Williams, Ari Shaffir and Christian Pazsitzky, to name just a few, the shows cover all elements of comedy, middle age, humanity and fart jokes.  Here’s a few suggestions of shows to follow.  The entire 11 show network is also listed below.

First up Harland Williams podcast The Harland Highway, you may remember him from Dumb and Dumber. This is the place to be for Harland Williams jokes, commentary, interviews, observations & hilarious reoccurring characters.


Bill Burr also features on the All Things Comedy Network with his show Bill Burr’s Monday Morning Podcast. Here’s Bill explaining the show:

“I host a podcast each week called The Monday Morning Podcast. This past year I was lucky enough to be in two episodes of Breaking Bad. I hope to get a chance to do more work like that in the future.”

The Minivan Men features comedians Chris Spencer, Al Madrigal and Maz Jobrani. They all have kids. They also have wonderful wives, friends and neighbors who sometimes drive them to the brink of insanity. If it matters, none of them own a minivan – which doesn’t mean they don’t necessarily want one. Enjoy.

There are so many other shows to feature that one blog post can not do it justice. Other shows part of the All Things Comedy Network are Ari Shaffir Skeptic’s Tank, The LongShot Podcast, Walking the Room, Jake This, The Flop House, Your Mom’s House, Laugh Spin, and Deep Shit with Baron Vaughn.
