Dearest readers and listeners,
The Busby Babe Podcast is looking to increase its fan engagement, and a few weeks ago we set up a number for fan voicemails! The response has already been tremendous.
There was only one drawback. International calling fees limited who could contribute to our voicemails to listeners based in the United States. This wasn’t acceptable to us as this not only limits our pool of potential voicemails but has the potential to silence a large percentage of our listener base.
Manchester United is a global club, The Busby Babe is an international site, and our listeners have an international voice.
We’ve been trying to find the best solution for this, we’ve dropped the ball on creating a short term fix and you’ve let us hear about that. While we’re upset that we didn’t do this sooner, we’re happy to see that there is interest from our international listeners to contribute.
We’re happy to announce we’ve got a fix.
Want to leave a voice mail but don't want to be hit with charges for calling internationally? We've got you covered there too now! Create a voice note on your mobile and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org We'll play the best ones each show #MUFC @Colintheshots95 @NathanIsRed https://t.co/hJMVl8ZWr3— Pauly Kwestel (@pkwestel) June 22, 2020
This may not be the most perfect solution — and we’ll keep looking to find one — but we hope it’ll work for the time being.
We’ll be recording our next episode prior to the Sheffield United match so send The Busby Baes your thoughts on the Spurs match or the upcoming Sheffield match. Everything is on the table.
