Soundcloud will turn six-years-old at the end of this month. It started off as a way for audio nerds to easily upload music and other sounds online -- and it has spread from there. In the last two years alone, Soundcloud's registered users have increased 400 percent to 40 million.

Alex Jung, Soundcloud's co-founder and CEO, joins Marketplace Tech host Ben Johnson to discuss the company's founding and recent success.

“I think the best compliment I can give is not to say how much your programs have taught me (a ton), but how much Marketplace has motivated me to go out and teach myself.” – Michael in Arlington, VA
