    Episode 81: Do We Talk About It?

    Sometimes it’s best to stop, take stock and just shut the F up. When 2020 went left, we had no choice but to press pause... That time has passed. The people have spoken, we listened. We back.
    So what’s changed? What’s happened since March? Will TRYP ever be the same? There’s a lot to discuss, but how do you cover the longest seven months in one conversation? Press play to find out.

    Episode 79: 1999

    Episode 79: 1999

    Recorded at Eggslut restaurant, Portobello Road, Notting Hill.
    This week we continue with part 2 of our 3-part run recorded at Eggslut. While working their way through the menu, Reg, Baba, Owen and Uzo discuss the 'racist raps' complaints made against Dave at this year's Brits. Was his performance really underpinned by racism? Which part of Britain actually made the complaints? How have the Brits responded to being called out for under-representing Black artists? They also discuss the death of US Rap star Popsmoke and the intersection between social media, success in music, street culture and how it's all intertwining to lead to such tragedies. On a lighter note, the boys also confess their first-ever TV presenter crushes and discuss why 1999 was one of the best years for film, ever.

    Recorded at Eggslut restaurant, Portobello Road, Notting Hill.
    On this week's episode Reg, Baba, Owen and Uzo are hosted by the good people at Eggslut for a day of recording and multiple ordering (the food's THAT good)
    In the first of a 3-part run, the boys discuss the hysteria surrounding the Coronavirus: is it a case of genuine worry or heightened media frenzy? how they take care of their health when life's pressures get high as is the case for Reggie who's currently shooting his new film Pirates (follow @piratesfilm) and what makes boxer Tyson Fury such a legend. Uzo also brings his own home-made purple bread rolls. Yes. Purple.
    And in other news, we've officially entered the British Podcast Awards! keep an eye out for news on how to vote ;)

Insightful & laugh out loud funny!

Great show that finds an impeccable balance between ‘spit your coffee out’ funny and poignant and insightful. This one jumps to the top of the ‘up next’ list each time it’s released.
