Once home to Sir Frank Whittle, the pioneer of the jet engine and a hotspot for the watchmakers of Coventry, Earlsdon is littered with beautiful architecture and historical secrets. Yet today it’s a simple weekday morning as we walk along Earlsdon High street - pass the shops, pubs and workmen - towards a noisy hedge on Albany Road, with some tweeting visitors. The cars and buses pass us none the wiser.

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.
