We announced this year’s final 15 SoundCloud Community Fellows on the blog last week. We’re excited to be welcoming such brilliant folks whose projects showcase the breadth and uniqueness of sound.
For the rest of this week, we’ll be sharing the first tracks of each Fellow’s project, so let’s get started. Three New Yorkers have joined the fellowship. Read more about the “motley crew” of local NY fellows from Brooklyn and Manhattan in this BetaBeat feature here.
Jonathan Mitchell’s The Truth podcast is an audio drama, “a movie for your ears.” Throughout his Fellowship, immerse yourself in a political drama series based on the upcoming elections with a Halloween twist. Spooky!
Look forward to the next set of Fellows’ first introductions the rest of this week. From now until the end of the October, we’ll be sharing all their project updates. Fellows will also be reporting back their own personal experiences of this journey. We hope you join them in unmuting the web!
It is Friday again, that means it is time for our weekly employee interview series that we have dubbed “Tea(m) Time”! Today, help us welcome Laura Dunne to our team in Berlin!
On Wednesday Laura and I took a walk around Mitte, the neighborhood (“kiez” auf Deutsch) in Berlin where the SoundCloud HQ is located. We chatted about the Irish language, Laura’s deep love of music that stems from her upbringing and she talked to me about her new life in Berlin. Listen to her full interview below!
Specifics: Laura Dunne, originally from Ireland, Community Support Specialist, based in the Berlin HQ
