Hoovering - Episode 106: Shappi Khorsandi

Welcome to HOOVERING, the podcast about eating. Host, Jessica Fostekew (Guilty Feminist, Motherland) has a frank conversation with an interesting person about gobbling; guzzling; nibbling; scoffing; devouring and wolfing all up… or if you will, hoovering.

This week I’m hoovering with superstar comedian, author and ex-celebrity Masterchef and Get Me Out Of Here contestant Shappi Khorsandi. We hoof a load of Wagamamas and get deeeeep into disordered eating conversations. Considered we’re a pair of comedians this one gets pretty fucking dark. It’s a beautiful and powerful conversation though.
