We’ve already posted about this amazing audio message from recovering congresswoman Rep Gifford who was shot back in January in Tuscon. It deserves another mention.

It’s also part of this week’s SoundCloud Voices, which takes a look at some unique uses of SoundCloud in the political world. Take a read and listen over on the blog.



Listen to this powerful and moving audio message by House Representative from Arizona, Mrs. Gabrielle Giffords, who earlier this year was a victim of a horrible shooting near Tuscon.

It truly is inspiring to be able to listen to Mrs. Giffords speak today considering what she’s been through.

This week’s SoundCloud Voices takes a look at how political organisations and governments are using the site to share their sounds.  Like the Scottish Government for example - take a listen to their post about the importance of Gaelic, in Gaelic, above.  And to read the rest of the post, hop on over here!

Dylan Ratigan, who had been using his SoundCloud account in a great way for sharing recordings and sounds, just found another great way to make use of audio: responding to emails he gets using audio. He calls this Dylan’s Inbox and it’s very cool.

Democrats aren’t doing it, Republicans aren’t doing it, an entire integrated system, banking, trade and taxation, created by both parties over a period of two decades is at work on our entire country right now.

Here’s the video version.

The team being Dylan Ratigan has been using SoundCloud to share some of the latest recordings. This is quite an epic one.
