SoundCloud Community Fellows | Here Be Monsters and DecodeDC | Andrea quits NPR

The 2012 SoundCloud Community Fellowship concluded a few weeks ago, but we’d still love to share this great episode by Jeff Emtman, whose Fellowship project, Here Be Monsters is all about the unknown.

In light of this, he interviewed former NPR journalist Andrea Seabrook, also a SoundCloud Fellow, whose podcast DecodeDC is dedicated to shaking up Washington and revealing the facts that are often hidden or “unknown” in public media.

We’re honored that both were part of this program and got to be in touch afterward. Enjoy and leave a comment about what you think.

US Election Night 2008: Where were you?

Rewind the tape with Random Tape, a 2012 SoundCloud Community Fellow and check out the other episodes of his second season here.

And since we’re on the subject of elections…don’t miss these horror-filled election episodes by the Truth here.

Jonathan Mitchell is one of the 2012 SoundCloud Fellows. His project The Truth is a “movie for your ears.” As part of his fellowship, Jonathan is producing a set of horror-themed election episodes.

Imagine listening to a thriller movie. Do you have the chills? You don’t want to miss this week’s episode, “That’s Democracy” in which students learn an unforgettable lesson on democracy. You can listen to his last episode “Third Party” here.
