SoundCloud Voices is a new 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.
We’ve got two brilliant interview podcasts for you this week, both of which have a great pedigree in the podcast world and have just started using SoundCloud in the last couple of months! Take a listen and follow them!
First up is Public Radio International’s Bullseye which in their own words “is your guide to the good stuff in culture”. Jesse Thorn hosts in-depth interviews with brilliant creators, culture recommendations and irreverent original comedy. Bullseye has been featured in Time, The New York Times, GQ to name a few and was formerly know as The Sound of Young America which he started in 1999 and has featured the likes of Simon Pegg, Judd Apatow, Flying Lotus, Werner Herzog, Phil Collins and Bootsy Collins to name a few. It’s also part of the Maximum Fun podcast network which also features comedy podcast Jordan Jesse Go and Judge John Hodgman. It’s a great podcast, featuring great guests and great cultural recommendations. Take a listen below to his interview with Chris Lilley, writer of Summer Heights High and Angry Boys.
Next up is the slightly more adult but equally brilliant is The Gentleman’s Club with Caleb Bacon. The Gentlemen’s Club with Caleb Bacon is a weekly interview show featuring goofy conversations with comedians, television and radio personalities, and live nude pornstars. This weekly show comes to you from Los Angeles free in MP3 each Monday. For Gentlemen, since 2009. An by pure coincidence Caleb interviewed Mr Jesse Thorn from Bullseye in his latest episode which conveniently allows to save our blushes and not post an interview with a porn star! Take a listen below.
