(The Independent)

From medical news to government advice, and from home-working tools to financial advice and wellbeing tips, The Independent offers no scare stories, no hype – just the in-depth analysis and trusted features you need during an extraordinary situation.

In this podcast, we’ll be answering readers’ questions, speaking to guests and making the most of our team of journalists around the UK, the US and the world.​

On the show today TikTok star and impressionist Meggie Foster joins The Independent's Social Media Editor Ben Kelly to discuss her rise to internet stardom during the Covid-19 lockdown.

For many people around the world ‘lockdown’ has been a major part of the last few months. In fact we’ve just passed a remarkable 100 days of these restrictions in the UK.

Meggie, who was furloughed from her full time job, took to TikTok and began lip-syncing politicians' voices in a new wave of internet satire.

You can subscribe to the series on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Acast or wherever you listen. Be sure to join the conversation by emailing us at or using the hashtag #indycoronaviruspodcast on social media.
