Hoovering - Episode 89: Brona C Titley

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.


In this episode I’m talking to my friend the truly extraordinary writer and actor Brona C Titley. We’ve made friends over the course of the last few years on some writing jobs and Brona is one of the funniest people I know - it’s been a long old wait for me to finally get her on the podcast so I’m over the moon that it’s happening! It doesn’t disappoint. We’re having tea and biscuits at the Bill Murray and as you’ll hear, Brona’s super pregnant which is a Hoovering first.
