Xarabank presenter Peppi Azzopardi thinks social media has turned the driver involved a policeman's hit-and-run into a "monster".

Tenor Joseph Calleja admits he felt like a fish out of water when he was embroiled in a political dispute.

Chris Fearne and Adrian Delia discussed political manoeuvres and in one of the most watched Times Talk editions of the year, poet Immanual Mifsud denounces the state of Maltese politics... and society.

Activists, politicians, decision-makers, and people with a story to tell were among those who sat for the weekly Times Talk interview in 2018.

Presented by Herman Grech, Vanessa Macdonald and Bertrand Borg, Times Talk hosts a different guest for the programme uploaded on Times of Malta every Wednesday.
