Hoovering - Episode 68: Live at Machynlleth Comedy Festival

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 weeks episode was recorded live at the beautiful paradise that is the Machynlleth Comedy Festival in Wales with the most brilliant wonder guests Kiri Pritchard-Mclean, Nish Kumar and flogger of Hay’s finest ice-cream from Shepherd’s Parlour, Jess Hope-Jones.
