LSE joins SoundCloud

SoundCloudMore than 1,000 recordings from the London School of Economics and Political Science’s prestigious public lectures programme and other LSE podcasts are now available to download from SoundCloud, the world’s leading social sound platform.

The podcasts of LSE public lectures include speakers from across the globe with talks by academics such as Professor Paul Krugman and Professor Amartya Sen, as well as politicians such as prime minister David Cameron and former US president Bill Clinton. His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Bill Gates, Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and Sheryl Sandberg of Facebook also feature.

LSE on SoundCloud will also host the School’s Causes and Things podcast, a new podcast series which offers a lively introduction to some of the ideas being explored by researchers at LSE, and the LSE Review of Books podcast, which aims to give listeners the opportunity to hear prolific authors and academics discuss the ideas behind their latest books.

This content, which is also available on the LSE video and audio pages and iTunes U, can be enjoyed by anyone via the SoundCloud website or the SoundCloud apps for iPhone, iPad and Android. LSE on SoundCloud, which has already gained over twenty thousand followers while the service was in beta, will bring this content to an even wider audience and will give users the opportunity to share, embed and comment on the podcasts.

LSE on SoundCloud has been developed by Web Services within LSE’s External Relations Division.
