During the height of the global pandemic, Podknows Podcasting network podcaster Yvonne Campbell decided to spend a year in Barbados.

You’ll need to listen to the podcast to learn what happened but let’s just say that her challenges came thick and fast.

Not only was she dealing with restrictions caused by a certain virus, but also a volcano that decided to erupt while she was on the island.

But in the time she was there, she managed to get quite the traction with her podcast, including some press coverage in the Daily Mirror, a piece on Sky News, hundreds of loyal followers on Apple Podcasts and outranking the official tourism board podcast in search.

She’s still ranking highly now, even more than a year since posting her most recent episode.
