SoundCloud Voices

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.

This week we are taking an educational perspective, with two of the biggest education institutions in the world  - University College London and Stanford University.

First up UCL who are using SoundCloud to distribute and promote their “Lunch Hour Lectures”, talks from UCL alumni, historical talks, the latest UCL news and all kinds of other academic presentations and findings.  The Lunch Hour Lectures in particular are worth a listen; each week members of various departments showcase new research and recent academic publications:
