Welcome to Episode 158 of Loose Talk Podcast, the number one podcast in Africa. After the political steamroll on the last episode of the podcast and the complaints that followed, we welcome you to this one with the peace, fitting for the troubled world.
First off, we apologize for the audio on Episode 157, but we really hope you enjoyed the content on the last episode, even though you might have labored through it. As the opening minutes of the episode suggests, blame Abass and Chris. The expo to do that was duly delivered in the opening minutes of the podcast.
A lot happened over the past week and Loose Talk Podcast was there to document. One of those beautiful occurrences was when Mo ‘shot her shot’ at Ebro Darden and reports claim he duly replied.

‘You only chase after unavailable men’
While chatting further on the elections, the gang chatted about the election results, Banky W, the low results and the guy with 12 votes from the place where we don’t know, Mo discusses the good looks of Jide Obanikoro. Steve jabbed back with the heading of this paragraph.
The gang also discussed the few politicians who have done well in their position of power.
As the gang moved further, the gang discusses the very sensitive matter of criticism that Nigerian parents constantly cop on social media upon Wale’s appearance on Jada Pinkett’s ‘The Red Table,’ Kardashians vs. Jordyn Woods (vs. Tristan Thompson), the power of money in a relationship and other polarizing, interesting conversations.
