Hoovering - Episode 39: Jack Monroe

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 my guest is someone I’ve had more requests to have as a guest than anyone else - someone whose genuinely trying to change the world for the better and who is treating the world for the wounds it currently has when it comes to poverty and specifically what poverty means for eating. It’s the funny and formidable Jack Monroe
