We’re back in the city centre in this episode, beside the central circular fountain where both precincts meet with Market Way and Smithford Way. We follow the water, taking in the poetry on the floor titled ‘Weaving Coventry’ towards the Upper Precinct fountains, drop a pound in the pot of the saxophonist busker and head towards the Lady Godiva statue in Broadgate.

It’s not compulsory, but these soundscapes are best listened to while wearing headphones! All conversations are authentic and real. The recordings were captured using a binaural microphone between January and April 2022. You can also hear these soundscapes in the accompanying storyteller episodes in our first series.

Sound design by Clare Freeman, opening music by Mintakaa. ‘Our Cov’ podcast series is a Coventry City of Culture Trust commission, created and produced by A Small Furry Bear Productions.
