Listening to a podcast

Podcasts are audio recordings that are in a digital format. They are intended to be downloaded and listened to on your computer or mobile device. They are free and, after downloading, you don’t have to stay connected to the Internet to listen to them.

To obtain podcasts, you can either:

  • Download the file straight from a podcast’s website (like ‘’). This means you’ll need to visit the site often to get new updates
  • Use a podcast directory which can, for your subscribed podcasts, automatically download each episode

The benefit of coming to the Fun with Bells website to listen to the podcast is that you can also view the additional information and photographs available for each episode.

However, if you prefer the ease, of listening to automatically downloaded episodes, then you may want to use a podcast directory.

You can choose from many podcast directories including:

  • For iPad and IPhone users: the Apple Podcasts app which is pre-installed
  • For Android users: the Google Podcasts app – which needs to be installed from the Google Play store
  • For use with Alexa: Just Say “Alexa, play the Fun with Bells podcast”

The Fun with Bells podcast has been distributed to many places including iTunes, Google Play, Spreaker and Spotify – so you should be able to search for it in your favourite podcast directory. Please let us know, at if it is missing from somewhere that you would like to pick it up from.

Remember that you can listen to the episodes on this website (with the benefit of the accompanying photos and resource links). To be advised, by email, of new episodes, sign up in the footer.

Alternatives to listening to the podcast

As of 2022, we are now intending to produce full written transcripts and abridged content YouTube videos for our episodes. If there are any episodes where these are missing and you would like us to work on them then please let us know at
