When I say I was mad nervous about this episode, I'm not joking. I had no idea what I was going to be asked or how it would pan out. Joined by IP (Rage) and Yasin (as voted by the listeners), who took over the show and put me in the spotlight, they asked me questions to which the answers will take the listener deeper than ever before in to the life of MP. I kept my answers as honest and real as possible, at the end of the day it wouldn't be "Real Talk" if I didn't! We talk about relationships, childhood, my mental health, future goals and so much more! To get involved with Real Talk or for any feedback, give me a shout on Instagram @mp.realtalk

On this episode I am joined by Yasin and Ibby as we discuss all things Covid-19, "Corona virus" and Lockdown once again. This time we focus on the new rules and regulations (as of 12/10/2020). We answer what new rules have got the listeners the most riled up, if facemasks make any difference, what we miss the most about life before Lockdown and when we think "normality" will be fully restored. I went out and done some research via the .gov website, BBC & The Guardian news articles to get the most accurate figures and rules currently in place. This episode was genuinely funny, insanely informative and fact filled. Things even got a little political to be honest!

Apologies for the quality of audio in this episode, turns out we were having technical issues but only realised after publishing.
