Hoovering - Episode 117: Ayesha Hazarika

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 talking to comedian, journalist and general politics wizard, Ayesha Hazarika. We recorded this just after Easter from the comfort of our homes, both, well mainly me, eating some Easter themed chocolate. Yes please. We talk about everything from the who gets to define what counts as exercise right down to Nigella’s thoughts on her turkey mince.

Honourable Mentions


If you don’t already then follow AYESHA HAZARIKA immediately on Twitter. She has a weekly column every Wednesday night in the EVENING STANDARD which is ace too.


I’m doing weekly live chats at 9pm on school nights with ex guests on the podcast’s INSTAGRAM page. They’re up in the stories for 24 hours afterwards and are a lot of fun. 


My live stuff is obviously all on hold but I’m in two series on telly at the moment, THE TROUBLE WITH MAGGIE COLE on ITV Hub and TRIGONOMETRY on the BBC iplayer. Also I’m part of the writing team between a new series called SUSAN CALMAN: SOCIALLY DISTANT on BB Iplayer for everyone and BBC Scotland for the Scottish Land.


If you have any spare dollar in your life the first thing I’d like you to do with it is give it to either a food bank like the TRUSSELL TRUST.


If after giving to them you’ve still got more spare dosh to give a month I’m on this great site called PATREON where I swap your money for ace podcast related stuff like totally exclusive content and guest recipes. It’ll help me keep the podcast not just alive, but also thriving. Thanks so so so much if you’ve become a patron recently and/ or stuck with me since the beginning of this. 


This isn’t exactly what I was eating, see pics, but it gives you the gist about the HOTEL CHOCOLAT ELIZAPECK range. Haha. 


THIS IS THE TERRIBLE TURKEY MINCE TWEET


We talked about various crisps you might not know if you’re not UK based including FRAZZLESQUAVERS and MONSTER MUNCH
