Wrapping up a @SoundCloud Demonstration Project to Create & Curate Audio Content

October 26, 2012

For the past ten weeks, I’ve been working on a project supported by a 2012 SoundCloud Fellowship. “Working Now” is all about the working lives of people in the US and around the world. It’s also an homage to the great Studs Terkel and his book “Working” which will be 40 years old soon.

Here’s my audio recap of the project:

For me, this was an interesting experiment in commissioning, scheduling and curating audio content from a number of producers around the world. It took some work but we managed to post content every week day during the fellowship. I also love how these stories are so unique and engaging in their own way.

We’d love to continue the project in 2013 and truly commemorate Studs’ work by revisiting the jobs and interview subjects in his book.

In the meantime, you can check out the stories at WorkingNow.org or over on SoundCloud. But below is the Master List of all the stories we’ve shared so far:
