WORK WITH ME.
WHAT I DO
Make no mistake. The Radio Vagabond Podcast is a passion project for me.
I started working with radio in 1985 as a hobby. And even though, it’s also my work, it’s still something, I do because I love working with telling a story through audio and doing sound design. That’s why I spend 3-4 days just editing one 30-minute episode.
However, as the audience is growing, more and more travel brands would like to work with me.
It is attractions or resorts when I’m in a destination, FAM Trips before or after a travel blogger conference, or full press trips.
It can also be a regular sponsor – but it has to be relevant and something I use myself.
I RESPECT YOUR TIME
I don’t expect you have time to listen to full episodes (even though you should), so I have edited out a few shorter 2-3 minute clips that can give you an impression of how the podcast sounds and what I will be able to provide of value to your brand or destination, should you like to work with me too.

LUXURY IN THE FOREST
Mandina River Lodges are hidden in the African bush at the River Gambia, and is more peaceful and unique than I could ever imagine.

Every night it draws a crowd for that view. There are a few restaurants and bars serving rum punch and a great steel band, and according to the managing director Valerie, it’s the best steel band in the world.
