Hoovering - Episode 90: Sophie Duker

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 in a Peckham bakery talking everything from vibrators to child abandonment with a great comedian, the incredible Edinburgh Award Best Newcomer Nominee this year, Sophie Duker. 


Everything written below in CAPITALS is a link to the relevant webpage.

Our next live show is up in Thirsk on Sat 23rd November as part of the amazing PODCAST SOCIAL CLUB run by the legends behind Deer Shed Festival. My guests include comedian Kate Fox and one more being announced super soon. 



Honourable Mentions


Follow Sophie on SOCIAL MEDIA, go and see her live shows that she’s part of called WHACKY RACISTS as well as her best newcomer nominated solo show VENUS, both on at the Soho Theatre. 


I have a stand up show called HENCH all, roughly about strength and gender and a little bit about diet-life too you know. It got nominated for best show in Edinburgh and it won some other shit and got sexy reviews across the board. It’s on tour and I would love love love to have you come to it. 



In January it’s at the SOHO THEATRE from 6th - 25th. Not Sundays but all the other nights. It’s sold out in October and January is nearly sold out most weekend nights now so get in quick yes please yes please.
