This episode is the first one recorded back on land, as Robert’s time in Asia on the Quantum of the Seas has reached it’s completion. The irony for this Canadian host is that once again this episode (and it’s guest) are from the United States of America. Besides this episode being special as the first one back on land, it is special for the reason that Robert had the chance to reunite and interview a dear friend who is like a sister to him. Marimba Gold-Watts was born and raised in San Francisco, California but has been based in NYC for over 15 years now.

She has overcome many things including not being able to walk properly for years due to an injury. A healthy life, family and friends are important to her. She is a unique blend of being forever young, yet a wise old grandma. An infectious la
