Who listens to the Fun with Bells podcast?
Whilst the podcast is intended for those new to the bell ringing community, we have found that experienced ringers listen as well – we have been recommended by bloggers such as the Accidental Ringer, the President of the Central Council of Church Bell ringers and have had articles in the Ringing World.
81% of our downloads are from the UK, 10% the US and the rest from 75 other countries.
What others have said about this podcast – ‘Fantastic insight into learning to ring’, ‘I like the mix of topics’, ‘A brilliant snapshot of our cultural heritage’
The objective of the podcast is to attract and retain ringers by providing them with a sense of the wider ringing community that they are part of.
Who created this?
Cathy Booth hosts and produces the podcast with sponsorship for ongoing costs from the Association of Ringing Teachers. She is also supported by a small team including Anne Tansley-Thomas, Emily Roderick, Emily Watts and John Gwynne. Whilst the rest of the team are change ringers, Cathy has never rung bells but is the wife of Roger Booth, who learnt to ring bells when he was 10.
