The Heart Talks

Conversations with Inspiring, Everyday People

The idea for this short interview series The Heart Talks came while hosting my podcast as my alter ego, The Bajan (Barbadian) Empress. I wanted to have inspirational and insightful conversations with a twist and the twist, in this case, ended up being me hosting the shows as my alter ego The Bajan Empress. The Empress is funny, sweet, no-nonsense, very insightful, and puts guests at ease with her warming and relaxed persona. I hope you enjoy these inspiring conversations with extraordinary, everyday, people.
