Hoovering - Episode 79: Jess Robinson

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 joined by the utterly charming comedian, singer and impressionist Jess Robinson, for brunch in my flat up at the Edinburgh fringe, where we’re both performing.
